Strict Liability and the Role of the Pharmacist-in-Charge

“Strict Liability” refers to the PIC’s responsibility for illegal acts in their pharmacy – even if they aren’t at fault. This course describes responsibilities that fall on the PIC, and discusses proven strategies to mitigate risk for the Pharmacist-in-Charge.

Upon successful completion of this knowledge-based CPE course, pharmacists should be able to:
1. List the responsibilities of the Pharmacist-in-Charge
2. Describe the process for disciplinary action taken by a board of pharmacy against a Pharmacist-in-Charge
3. Discuss regulatory compliance strategies for a Pharmacist-in-Charge
