Finnish municipalities have legal responsibility to manage household originated pharmaceutical waste. Community pharmacies serve as disposal points. The amount of waste is high and more information is needed on why medicines are not used as planned but returned either partially or totally unused.
Community pharmacies were asked to list all.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
