Collaborative Practice Agreement Workshop


This workshop was developed to help pharmacists who are ready to put together a collaborative practice agreement (CPA) in place with a physician.  This is not a crash course for beginners.  It is highly recommended that participants already have a good foundation of the key elements of CPAs.  Majority of the workshop will be spent on discussing and designing CPAs that are specific to each participant’s practice site.  Therefore, it is important that participants come with a physician in mind whom they would like to work with or approach upon completing this workshop.  The goal of this course will be to have participants walk away with a customized CPA for their practice site.

Please note that all participants are encouraged to bring a laptop to work on the CPA.
