A collaboration between the CDC, the National Alliance of State Pharmacy Associations, APhA, and others, which highlights how the care and use of CPAs can lead to a more effective treatment of chronic diseases, especially high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease. It contains a letter signed by the American Medical Association and the American Association of Nurse Practitioners, which supports CPAs to use the value of pharmacy services and facilitate the coordination of care. Collaborative Practice Agreements (CPAs) create formal practical relationships between pharmacists and prescribers. CPAs can use collaborative care by defining functions that, in addition to the typical pharmacist`s practice, are delegated to the pharmacist by the co-operative prescriber under negotiated terms defined in the agreement. State laws may differ from whether CPAs apply to individual or multiple patients, are limited to certain practical parameters, in which they are allowed to enter (. B for example, all doctors subject to medical prescription, doctors and nurses only), the qualifications of pharmacists (for example. B approved by state bodies or registered with state bodies, PharmD, continuing education) and much more. Some states require parties to take out liability insurance or an invalid rebate after a period of time. These general CPA models offer state-specific CPAs to pharmacies, which allow certified pharmacists to manage services without individual prescriptions in your state. The models offer pharmacies a quick and convenient way to secure their CPA. In addition, compliance software has never been more accessible to pharmacies through Bula`s database of laws, regulations and pharmacy documents.
