We propose to design and execute a collaboration between a pharmacy association, academia, community and clinic based pharmacies in Washington State to create a pharmacist-prescribed class of drugs through collaborative practice agreements that create a Clinical Community Pharmacist Formulary. We will establish the criteria for using a formulary of medications for pharmacist prescribing in acute care. We further propose to train a cadre of pharmacists that will have access to a drug formulary, to collect data in order to estimate the costs and benefits of this program, and to assess patient satisfaction. Finally, we plan to create a web-based platform that will allow data collection and tracking that could be replicated for future use in other States.
