Dr. Rick Kington will be the featured presenter during a free webinar for pharmacists and nurse practitioners (NPs) on dietary supplements and adverse event reporting results. The webinar is sponsored by The Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) and will take place on Thursday, March 3, at 1:00pm Eastern. The webinar is presented exclusively to members of Skipta’s Pharmacist Society and Generation NP communities.
During this one-hour webinar, “Safety by the Numbers: Making Sense of Dietary Supplement Adverse Event Data,” Dr. Kingston will present adverse event reporting conclusions from the Dietary Supplement and Nonprescription Drug Consumer Protection Act of 2006 that requires dietary supplement companies to report all serious adverse events to FDA. As importantly, Dr. Kingston will provide context for these numbers, as well as reports from poison control centers and from emergency rooms, to address some of the confusion regarding the safety profile for the dietary supplement category.
