Poison Prevention Week Tips

With Angel Bivens, PharmD, from the Maryland Poison Center

Poison Prevention Week is coming up March 15 thru the 21, 2010. This gives  nurses an opportunity to collaborate with their local poison centers and arrange activities for poison awareness not only for health professionals but most especially for the public.

For this episode, I am joined by Toxicology Specialist and community educator, Angel Bivens, PharmD, from the Maryland Poison Center (MDPoison.com) to chat about using resources from the regional poison centers to set up a local education program, meeting, or training to teach the public about poison prevention for patients at all ages.

Angel covers some of the programs health providers can do to help manage emergencies and trips to the hospital by utilizing their local poison center resources.
