In this challenging case study, students determine whether to fill a patient’s prescription while considering the opioid misuse epidemic plaguing the United States. Take on the role of pharmacist as you counsel the patient with the advice of an Ohio State University College of Pharmacy student. Students explore pharmacy career opportunities in hospital and community settings.
