The WSPA New Drugs, New Laws Seminar has been a perennial favorite for years! Busy pharmacists and technicians appreciate this one-day session with both clinical and regulatory updates for practice, in addition to many opportunities to network and connect with peers.


New Drugs New Laws is evolving this year to continue to meet your needs. The popular New Drugs Session by Dr. Terri Levien will be complimented by the addition of New Guidelines Review by Dr. Levi Lancaster and Dr. Steven Elrod from Providence St. Peter Family Medicine. This new component of NDNL will review changing guidelines and updates annually to keep you on the same page as patients and your peers. Then focus will shift from clinical to regulatory. Dr. Julie Akers will kick off the discussion reviewing new state and federal laws and legislation. This will be followed by a discussion of workplace conditions and safety with Dr. Jennifer Wilson Norton presenting on Workers’ Rights and Labor Laws and Dr. Annie Lambert reviewing Employee Health including USP 800 and Handling of Hazardous Drugs. The day will be wrapped up by the Pharmacy Quality Assurance Commission staff discussing the important Washington Pharmacy Rules Rewrite, Pharmacy Inspections and PQAC Investigations.
