Workgroup Report | CPF Synopsis | Infographic
State pharmacy practice acts across the US authorize pharmacists and other prescribers, often physicians but sometimes others, to enter into a collaborative agreement in order to fully utilize each practitioners skill sets and optimize patient care. The specific language authorizing these agreements in the states codes is highly variable and often very restrictive. Currently there is not a clear best practice that can be used as a model for pharmacists in a given state to reference when making improvements to their own pharmacy practice act. Improvements are especially needed to make the utility of collaborative agreements more accessible to community pharmacists. This project would assemble a group of both national and state level leaders to evaluate current provisions in the 48 states that authorize collaborative agreements and develop model legislative language that could be used as a tool for state pharmacy associations in their advocacy efforts.
