Jaron Stout, PharmD: So, [collaborative practice agreements] will vary from state to state. Some states put more restrictions than others, but generally what it is, is when the physician or prescriber delegates some of their prescriptive power to a pharmacist.

So, where I live in Utah it’s defined as: 1 or more prescribers delegating prescriptive power to 1 or more pharmacists. So, what that really means is—where I’m live in Utah fortunately, I live in a state that puts no restrictions on it—basically, it’s just, they want that prescription to be physician driven. They want the physicians to be the ones to say, “You know what? I’m comfortable delegating X, Y, and Z, but not A, B, C." And so, it leaves it open to the physicians, and I’ve been able to tailor my collaborative practice agreements with what the physicians are comfortable with. And, it’s been a good thing to foster these collaborations and these relationships with these physician’s teams, to see the benefits of implementing of pharmacist services.
