340B University Virtual Workshop

Managing Drug Waste at 340B Entities

April 20 and 21, 2022

Purchasing Office Hours

Purchasing Office Hours is a 340B University online event in which participants watch an educational video then attend a live meeting for open discussion. The live session allows attendees to ask questions and discuss operational challenges with peers and subject matter experts. Capacity is limited to provide maximum peer-to-peer interaction.

Individuals who have a role in purchasing 340B drugs must be knowledgeable about program compliance elements for 340B-related decision making in their day-to-day workflows. The purpose of Purchasing Office Hours is to provide an overview of key elements regarding both compliance and stewardship in 340B drugs, assign actionable follow-up items to apply at your organization, and facilitate an open Q&A session for you to engage with peers and experienced faculty on operational topics.

Workshop Objectives:

  • Identify 340B compliance considerations in handling waste
  • Discuss unique waste scenarios and compliant options of replenishment
  • Outline how expired medications are handled and considerations when using a reverse distributor
  • Share best practices for processing medication returns and recalls to ensure 340B compliance
