Drug supply issues have become increasingly common, leading to drug shortages that can have a significant impact on patient care and require considerable resources to manage effectively and safely. The Society of Critical Care Medicine’s Drug Shortages Committee has developed a series of drug shortage alerts, which are designed to assist the multiprofessional team in implementing a consistent and safe approach to managing drug shortages.

The Society of Critical Care Medicine’s Drug Shortages Committee has developed a series of drug shortage alerts, which are designed to assist the multiprofessional team in implementing a consistent and safe approach to managing drug shortages. Drug Shortage Alerts are compiled by experts in the field. Practitioners are always advised to consult with staff to ensure that response to any drug shortage is in line with internal policies and procedures.
