Recorded May 12, 2020  1 CE

This second webinar in our Controlled Drugs series builds on the foundation from the introductory webinar, also presented by Jeffrey VanSplunder of Airis Pharmaceutical Solutions.

The information discussed will include the additional documentation required to be maintained in a clinic's administrative book presented with applicable templates and examples as well as security practices and documentation.

AIRIS is dedicated to Comprehensive Opioid Drug Regulatory Compliance.

Airis was founded by former law enforcement officers who were on the front lines working with businesses who administer and dispense controlled substances. They recognized client’s needs for someone to be an advocate between regulators and the opioid drug industry; ensuring compliance, exposing diversion & protecting clients’ interest.
