Presenters will provide an overview of public health and patient safety issues, including:

  • How the Track and Trace system, currently in a ten year implementation, protects our medication and how it will be affected by proposals such as Canadian importation.

  • What Canadian patients think of the idea of American importation of their drug supply.

  • How Canadian law enforcement views their role in helping keep counterfeits medicines out of America that ship through Canada.

  • Advanced intelligence on what we’re seeing in the new wave of counterfeiters now that they’ve achieved competency with pill presses and counterfeit molds. What they’ve decided to move into now will shock you!

  • On the ground intelligence from a local law enforcement agency directly confronting criminal gangs making counterfeits with pill presses.

  • What does it feel like to lose a loved one to a counterfeit medicine? A family will tell their personal story. Other families who have lost family members to counterfeit medicines in attendance will be recognized at the beginning of this session.
