Medical Commisson Requests AG Opinion

The Washington State Medical Commission has requested an Attorney General Opinion regarding questions about the Washington State Pharmacy Practice Act. Link

The focus of the request is clarification about whether the "act of diagnosing" is able to be delegated by a physician or physician assistant within collaborative drug therapy agreements (CDTA). An AG opinion that negatively impacts the ability for pharmacists to engage in CDTAs could have a devastating impact on patient access to care through the over 33,000 active CDTAs. The WSPA has discussed this issue with the Pharmacy Quality Assurance Commission,  Washington State Medical Association, Washington State Hospital Association, the Medical Commission Executive Director, our Universities, NABP, lawmakers and our national affiliates. We are still awaiting word from the AGO about their opinion. Special thanks to those groups that commented in favor of preserving the ability of physicians and pharmacists to collaborate under CDTAs as allowed by current statute and rule.
