Highlight Med Disposal Options for Patients
Patients will ask for your help disposing of old or unused meds.
Medications can fall into the wrong hands...either accidentally or intentionally. Encourage patients to drop off expired, unused, or unwanted medications to your pharmacy for safe disposal.
Check healthsteward.ca to see whether your province has a free return program for pharmacies. They offer supplies for collecting returned meds and sharps...and some offer pickup of full containers.
