Hello Everyone,

My name is Daniel Miller, a 4th year pharmacy student at the  
University of Iowa?s College of Pharmacy.  I am currently working on a  
project for Health Care Without Harm and Hospitals for a Healthy  
Environment to create a scoping document on pharmacists? role(s) in  
pharmaceutical waste management.  I know this list-serve is monitored  
by a large variety of professionals and I want to take advantage of  
that fact.

I am putting out an information request to the list-serve for the  
following items:

1) How do you feel pharmacists are currently impacting pharmaceutical  
waste management in your respective communities/hospitals/health care  
2) How could pharmacists improve their roles in pharmaceutical waste  
3) What barriers do you perceive that prevent pharmacists from  
efficiently assisting pharmaceutical waste management? (mainly  
hospital regs, state regs, apathy, lack of education, etc.)

In your responses, please let me know what your position is and where  
you are from.  As well, if you have any interesting regulations,  
hindrances, or circumstances specific to your hospital or health care  
facility, let me know.  Any help would be much appreciated and credit  
will definitely be given where it is due.

Thank you in advance for your responses.

Sincerely Grateful,

Daniel Miller
