A number of corporate medical departments are beginning to face a significant number of medico-legal issues relating to how they respond to pandemic threats such as the H1N1 virus/bird flu and bioterrorism (e.g. anthrax). This presentation will include the discussion of possible solutions such as distribution agreements with national pharmacy providers, contracts with local health care providers and pharmaceutical supplier distribution and inventory agreements.
