ABOUT THE 2008 CONFERENCE
This year's conference will be the premiere gathering place for disseminating the latest trend data available on prescription drug use and abuse. It will also showcase the rapidly expanding number of innovative demonstrations throughout the United
States and beyond that promote responsible, effective, efficient, and safe prescribing, usage, return and disposal practices. This conference represents the official venue for the Sixth Annual Maine Benzodiazepine Study Group Conference and the
Fifth Annual Unused Drug Return Conference.
The conference theme - Catalysts for Change - serves to emphasize the importance of a broad range of prescription drug stakeholders coming together in partnership to think creatively and constructively about ways in which to address the significant
issues associated with the use, abuse, return and disposal of prescription drugs. The theme is premised on the ultimate concern of all groups affected by prescription drugs in promoting the health and well-being of patients through the appropriate
use and handling of prescription drugs. The theme further emphasizes the importance of action strategies being undertaken locally, nationally, and internationally which are innovative and bold, holding promise as evidence-based approaches for
improving the quality of life and safety of individuals, families, and communities.
