Licensed pharmacists  “may enter in a written protocol-based collaborative drug therapy management agreement” with a physician whereby the pharmacist will “manage the drug therapy of individual patients.” The agreement will authorize the pharmacist to act in accordance with a “patient-specific written protocol.”  Permissible actions include implementing, modifying, or discontinuing prescribed drug therapy, ordering lab tests, and administering drugs.  Each agreement must specify the extent of the pharmacist’s authority and the circumstances requiring the pharmacist to notify the physician.  A copy of the protocol and documentation of a pharmacist’s actions must be placed in the patient’s medical record.
