Accurate results in therapeutic drug monitoring and drugs of abuse testing are important patient safety issues. The faculty will review possible reasons for falsely elevated or lowered therapeutic drug monitoring results, as well as false positive and false negative drug of abuse testing. The instructors will also discuss the ways people try to "cheat" on compliance drug testing, for example by dissolving parent drug tablets in urine. Finally, the session will address methods used to evaluate the causes of false positive and false negative results in toxicology laboratory and suggest possible ways to resolve these erroneous results, using real life case studies.
