The National Association of Boards of Pharmacy® (NABP®) is pleased to announce the launch of www.safe.pharmacy as an NABP-branded site featuring consumer-oriented information on September 4, 2019. Consumers will find information on preventing prescription drug abuse, how to safely use medication, how boards of pharmacy and pharmacists can serve as resources, and where to find permanent drug disposal locations.
For several years, the safe.pharmacy site has featured the branding of the .Pharmacy Verified Websites Program and was used to provide consumers with information about buying safely online. The site has been redesigned so that consumers can find the prescription drug safety information that NABP provides all in one spot. The site educates consumers on prescription drug safety, and will include the .Pharmacy Program as well as NABP’s AWARXE® Prescription Drug Safety Program information.
In addition, an improved interface for finding safe online pharmacies will be available and will feature a search tool to find out if a site is verified or Not Recommended. Presenting this content with the new NABP branding will build on NABP’s consumer education campaigns and the Association’s efforts to create awareness of NABP and the boards of pharmacy as providers of safe pharmacy resources and a guardian of public health.
NABP is the independent, international, and impartial Association that assists its state member boards and jurisdictions for the purpose of protecting the public health.
