ASOP GLOBAL, NCPIE, AMA, APhA, Others Unite to Educate about Illegal Online Pharmacies

The Alliance for Safe Online Pharmacies has launched a new initiative to raise awareness of illegal online drug sellers and counterfeit medications by educating and enlisting the help of healthcare providers across the country. ASOP Global also launched where providers, patients and caregivers can quickly and easily verify whether an Internet pharmacy website is safe and legal. ASOP Global and the Federation of State Medical Boards also worked with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, University of California San Diego and LegitScript to develop “Internet Drug Sellers: What Providers Need to Know,” a free online continuing education program (CME/CPE) for pharmacists and physicians.
