(Sept. 11, 2020) – The Kansas Board of Pharmacy launched a revamped K-TRACS website
on Sept. 1. K-TRACS, the state's prescription drug monitoring program, emphasizes patient safety and aims to provide additional training and educational opportunities for prescribers and pharmacists. The site includes video tutorials to highlight K-TRACS features that increase convenience and help users assess patient risk. It also contains a number of prescribing and dispensing resources related to controlled substance prescriptions and substance use disorders. Along with the website, K-TRACS also has developed a "provider toolkit" that can be downloaded for free from the website with many print and digital materials that can be shared with patients to help reinforce in-person conversations about medication safety, opioid use and other topics. Please encourage all prescribers and dispensers in your hospital or health system to utilize K-TRACS, an important patient safety tool.
