Help Build Support for Drug Shortages Legislation

Feb 17, 2011

You can help ensure that the FDA has the tools it needs to help minimize the impact of drug shortages on patient care by urging your senators to cosponsor the Preserving Access to Life Saving Medications Act (S. 296).

This legislation, introduced this week by Sens. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) and Robert Casey (D-Pa.), is an important first step towards preventing the patient harm that often occurs when a medication is in short supply.

Use the resources on ASHP’s online ASHP Advocacy Center to contact your senators and let them know about the impact of drug shortages on the patients you serve.

To contact your senators, log onto the Grassroots Advocacy Center using your member id number and password and follow the instructions on the page.

ASHP worked closely with Klobuchar’s and Casey’s offices as they developed the legislation and will strongly advocate along with you for its passage by soliciting cosponsors in the Senate.
