Advanced Practice Pharmacists - Leading the #PharmacyEvolution
Share |

As of August 10, 2016, pharmacists in California may now seek certification as an Advanced Practice Pharmacist (APh). This regulation has been long awaited since the passage of the corresponding legislation in 2013, Senate Bill 493 (SB 493). SB 493, in which CSHP was one of the leading pharmacy associations, expanded all pharmacists’ scope of practice by creating statewide protocols under which pharmacists can prescribe certain products including self administered contraceptives, immunizations, travel medications, smoking cessation therapy and naloxone.

CSHP is proud to recognize our members, and all Californian pharmacists, who have already taken the next step in becoming part of the Pharmacy Evolution!

"Getting my APh license was another step in the right direction to further support our role as a health care provider, help improve patient care and identifying any potential medication-related problems, and to further promote the pharmacy profession by working alongside the primary care providers as an extended member of an interdisciplinary care team under a collaborative practice agreement."
