Drug shortages have monstrous effects on healthcare
from Pharmacy Times
The drug shortage crisis has dominated healthcare over the past decade. Despite the added authority from the act to collect user fees from industry, enhance the safety of the drug supply chain, increase stakeholder involvement in FDA processes, and promote innovation to speed access to effective and safe new drugs, drug shortages remain a monstrous obstacle for healthcare personnel and patients. A multitude of factors can cause these shortages, including manufacturing issues, natural disasters, raw material shortages and regulatory delays. These shortages affect patient care by causing medication errors, compromising or delaying medical procedures, and requiring replacement of first-line therapies with alternative medications.
