Hi All,

Below is a link to a news story about a Purdue Pharma survey, published in the Journal of Pain Research, which comes to the conclusion that:

"Patients Who Receive Information About the Importance of Safe Disposal are Three Times More Likely to Dispose of Unused Prescription Opioid Medications"


Increasing focus on public education requirements in EPR bills is clearly warranted!
