Understanding Pharmaceutical Distribution

Published 2022

This interactive course is made up of 13 modules illustrating the key pharmaceutical supply chain stakeholders and their functions as products move from the manufacturer to the customer.

The course provides users with information on DSCSA, supply chain resilience and the returns/recalls process, with content based on The Role of Distributors in the US Health Care Industry, the 92nd Edition HDA Factbook and The Role of Reverse Distribution.

New to the course are modules on Pharmacy Service Administrative Organizations (PSAOs) and Pharmacy Preparedness (created in partnership with Healthcare Ready).

Designed with training in mind, the course can be used as a whole, or trainers can pick and choose which modules to focus on. In addition to being mobile-friendly, this resource includes a search function, quiz questions and a flash card glossary.
