The European Platform for the Responsible Use of Medicines in Animals (EPRUMA), has published a factsheet on veterinary medicine waste reduction and correct disposal at the prescriber and user level.
The factsheet aims to raise awareness on the need to minimise the environmental impacts of medicines through appropriate disposal of pharmaceutical waste – from households, veterinary practices, and farming. Specifically highlighting the growing concern on the contribution of medicines from human and animal use to an increase of antimicrobial resistance in the environment.
FAQs and practical guidance to reduce pharmaceutical waste and best practices for disposal are given in the factsheet.
