    • Overview

      Pharmacy inventory management is a never-ending circle of ordering, shelving, and dispensing medications. Within that circle are the components of inventory management, documentation, and record keeping that keep the circle rotating.  In this module – The Lazy Susan of Inventory, Documentation, and Records – we will be exploring the different types of documentation, inventory management strategies, and record maintenance. We will discuss how to determine inventory needs, how to mitigate drug shortage issues, and compliance with contractual requirements. We will also examine some alternative sources of medication procurement.
