Setting Up Your Practice for Furnishing Hormonal Contraceptives in California

This course was developed to meet the CE requirements for the statewide protocol established by the California State Board of Pharmacy. The regulations include a statewide protocol authorizing pharmacists to directly furnish prescription hormonal contraceptives to women in California which became effective April 8, 2016. The program will review the specific requirements that pharmacists must follow in order to furnish prescription birth control included in CPhA’s sponsored legislation, SB 493.
