New Legislation Would Expand Practice Powers for Pharmacists

 

The proposed legislation is intended to fill the gap in the number of physicians who are available to care for and treat the burgeoning amount patients in California. Whether as a result of Obama care &/or the growing population of older citizens, there is pressure on the government to broaden the scope of practice of licensees who historically were able to only perform a very specific set of actions, procedures and protocols consistent with their knowledge, skills and experience.

In California, there is a growing trend in passing  legislation that will expand the scope of practice of, including but not limited to, nurses, pharmacists, and optometrists in which physicians were the only practitioners permitted to do so.
