Many of the most prescribed and OTC drugs can cause drug induced nutritional deficiencies over time. Most heath care providers are not taught about these potentially serious deficiencies. As a very accessible and highly trusted health resource, the pharmacist is in an ideal position to counsel patients on prescription and OTC medications that can cause drug induced nutritional deficiencies. A growing trend is seeing patients take more responsibility for staying healthy, and this is turning more patients into customers for vitamin supplementation. This program will cover the most common drug induced nutritional deficiencies, and supplemental counseling tips to give you confidence in counseling your patients in this growing, high-margin niche.

Pharmacist and Pharmacy Technician Learning Objectives:

  1. Apply course information to pharmacy patient database to identify patients with potential issues.

  2. Discuss prescription/OTC drug induced nutritional depletion with patients and recommend supplements.

  3. Create a plan to allow time, space, and manpower to counsel patients on their potential nutrient deficiencies.

  4. Counsel patients seeking wellness supplements on usage and interactions.
