Novel Drug Approvals in 2020 and 2021
Novel treatment options are available for patients that may substantially improve the public health. From drugs that treat migraine headaches to drugs that treat COVID-19, the new drugs introduced to the market will likely have a profound impact on a wide range of diseases. To be relevant practitioners, pharmacists need to have a thorough understanding of the newly approved medications. The purpose of this knowledge-based activity is to educate pharmacists on some of the most recently approved drugs. More specifically, there will be information provided on the effectiveness, safety, and handling of new drug approvals in the inpatient and outpatient settings.
