Collaborative Practice Agreement Templates Available
OPA’s Medication Therapy Management Committee has drafted templates for collaborative practice agreements (CPAs) for OPA members to use in their practices. These templates include a CPA General Template, as well as appendices for specific disease states that may be included in a CPA. There is also an appendix for additional disease states that pharmacists may want to include in a CPA. These documents are available in Word format so they can be tailored to specific practice settings.
Pharmacists who enter into collaborative practice agreements need to keep up-to-date on clinical practice guidelines, as well as board of pharmacy rules that apply to consult/collaborative practice agreements.
