2017 Utah Legislature Bill Tracker
The USHP Advocacy closely watched the 2017 Utah Legislative session. See the USHP 2017 Bill Tracker for the final summary of many of the bills impacting pharmacy and the USHP stance on the bill (last updated 3/10/17).
Naloxone Collaborative Practice Agreement
Recently, a variety of naloxone kits have become available for patients at high risk of adverse events from narcotics. This is an area that is well suited for a collaborative practice agreement. Attached is a draft Naloxone Collaborative Practice Agreement Template that can be adapted to your individual practice site. These are available in both Microsoft Word and PDF Format. Please note that these are only templates and must be approved by your pharmacy and medical leadership according to Utah State Law.
Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA)
The Drug Quality and Security Act (DQSA), was signed into law by President Obama on November 27, 2013. The intent of this law is to verify the pedigree of prescription medications (also know as track and trace). See the FDA Website for more details.
