Latest industry news and alerts

We share regular email notices called Practice Alerts with our members, notifying them of common errors and incident trends to be made aware of as practising pharmacists. They can be national alerts or state-specific if connected to local legislation, either way we always keep members in the loop. Members will also receive any important announcements about PDL.
