Dietary Supplements: Complementary or Confusing?

Speaker: Monika Nuffer, PharmD and David Kroll, PhD
Contact Hours: 1.0 CE

Session Description: Herbal and non-botanical dietary supplements have been a multi-billion dollar industry in the United States for three decades, with up to half the population reporting use of such products during the last year. But shortcomings in product regulation and advertising present challenges to the practitioner in advising patients on the appropriateness and safety of the use of supplements. Improvements in the quality of professional information sources and independent product testing have broadened the scope of resources available to busy practitioners, but some drawbacks remain. This program aims to provide the practitioner with a working knowledge of dietary supplement resources on safety, efficacy and product quality.

Cannabidiol (CBD): Getting the Facts for Pharmacists

Speaker: Laura Borgelt, PharmD, MBA, FCCP, BCPS
Contact Hours: 1.0 CE

Cannabidiol (CBD) is approved by the Food and Drug Administration and is available over-the-counter when made from hemp. Despite being marketed for a variety of conditions including inflammation, pain, insomnia, and anxiety, the evidence is not clear about its effectiveness or legal status. Pharmacists may be uncertain about how to discuss the use of CBD with patients. It is necessary for pharmacists to have an understanding of CBD formulations, the evidence to date, potential drug interactions, and other key issues so that pharmacists are better able to discuss the use of CBD with patients.
