Pharmacists must obtain and record the following information prior to or concurrent with dispensing a medication: (1) the individual’s name, address, phone number, gender, and date of birth; (2) the individual’s significant history (e.g. disease states, allergies, and drug reactions); (3) a list of the drugs and devises the pharmacy has dispensed within the preceding 180 days; and (4) the pharmacist’s notes on the individual’s drug therapy.

Pharmacists must review medications dispensed to an individual in the preceding 180 days prior to screen for drug therapy problems (e.g. contraindications, dosage errors, etc.). If practicable, pharmacists must offer to discuss a medication before dispensing it to an individual. This discussion should address topics such as the proper use of the medication and how to respond to adverse reactions. Pharmacists must document medication counseling, a patient’s refusal of counseling, and a patient’s refusal to give information.
