Creating Collaborative Practice Agreements


Pharmacists can improve patients’ health when they are part of the patient’s health care team. One way to meet this goal is with a collaborative practice agreement (CPA) between pharmacists and other health care providers. This session will discuss the key elements of a CPA and how to implement one in practice, and is relevant for pharmacists planning to practice with an Advanced Practice Pharmacist license.

  • Define elements of a collaborative practice agreement
