Event: DRI 2013

Author: Robert Munro

This case study focuses on lessons learned from a national drug shortage due to a global supplier and just in time delivery failure.

This session outlines how the Office of Disaster Management handled this incident to ensure the stability of the drug inventory for the Health System of Manitoba, and what would steps would be implemented to prevent such a situation from occurring in the future. The key lessons learned relate to global supplier dependence and just in time delivery.
