One Pill Can Kill

Posted over 6 years ago by Regina Pommer

 

Have you lost a patient or someone you know to a drug overdose? Seven Floridians a day lose their battle with prescription drug abuse. Since implementation of E-FORCSE, Florida’s Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP), there has been a 17 percent reduction in oxycodone related deaths.

You can help end this epidemic by making a donation to fund the PDMP. Just a $5 donation from each prescriber and dispenser would sustain program operations for one year. Please visit www.flpdmpfoundation/donations and give today or make a check payable to The Florida PDMP Foundation, Inc. to Kahan Heimberg, P.L.C., Attn: Mr. Brian Kahan, Treasurer, 2300 NW Corporate Blvd., Suite 123, Boca Raton, FL 33431.

The Florida PDMP Foundation, Inc. recommends that all prescribers and dispensers access the PDMP to review their patients’ prescription history prior to prescribing or dispensing controlled substances. Registration is free and query results are available in less than a minute. To register for access to the database please visit E-FORCSE, Florida's Prescription Drug Monitoring Program.

The Florida PDMP Foundation is a not-for-profit organization solely dedicated to providing assistance, funding and promotional support for Florida’s PDMP.
