[Webinar] The Value of Random Drug Testing in the Prevalence of Prescription Drug Abuse
We've discussed the topic of drug testing quite a bit recently on the PreCheck Blog. The truth is, it's become quite a hot topic over the past year. Last year, a group of Johns Hopkins researchers called for the healthcare industry to instate strict drug and alcohol testing programs to protect patient safety. More recently, in mid-March, DHHS Inspector General Daniel R. Levinson and a colleague wrote an OpEd article featured in the New York Times, where they called hospitals to implement random drug testing programs for all healthcare workers. With the emerging trends from researchers and regulatory agencies, this may be an opportune time to review your organization's drug testing policy.
On Wednesday, May 7th, 2014, PreCheck hosted a complimentary one-hour session with drug testing expert Bill Current, President of WFC & Associates. During the presentation, Bill discusses what you need to know for implementing your employment random drug testing program as well as reviewing fundamental best practices and various regulations affecting employers.
