As a state pharmacy association/society executive, I had the privilege of “belonging” to every national pharmacy organization in the alphabet soup of pharmacy organizations: APhA, ASHP, NACDS, NCPA and ASCP.  One of the most beneficial memberships is with the National Alliance of State Pharmacy Associations (NASPA).

I recently returned from the 2015 national meeting of NASPA held in conjunction with the NASPA Total Store Expo and had a chance to hear from the leaders in pharmacy on the latest national legislation and pharmacy initiatives. Topics included:

  • MAC and FUL in Medicaid
  • Provider status
  • Evolution of MTM
  • Broad Collaborative Practice Laws
  • States focus to remove restrictions for collaborative practice and expand authority for pharmacists to administer medications and immunizations
  • Administration of psychotropic medications (potential J&J funding)

All topics we’ll see more about in the future.
