Prescription Monitoring Programs (PMPs) have been described by the Office on National Drug Control Policy, and other federal agencies as "among the most promising resources in reducing the diversion and illicit use of prescription medications." In March, 2012, John Eadie, of the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) Center of Excellence presented a Children's Safety Network (CSN) webinar on PDMP's. Dr. Eadie, and his colleague, Tom Clark, will update us on PDMP developments that have occurred over the past two years, provide information about how you may contact your states' PDMP, and give examples of the types of information that may help you protect children and youth in your communities and state.
