In addition to supporting volunteers and members and the work of the OPA legislative staff in building coalitions and meeting with legislators, support for political campaigns is an important part of the advocacy process. We must support good legislators who support the pharmacy and the patients we serve, and we must build on these recent successes by achieving even more important goals. Please note the financial support of our legislative efforts by contributing to the Pharmacy PAC takeover. 100% of Pharmacy PAC`s money, which was paid by pharmacists, goes to candidates who support The Ohio Pharmacy. Or if you want to help support the takeover bid`s investments in our advocacy program, you should consider being part of the OPA Legislative Defence Fund (LDF). Additional changes to Ohio law allow pharmacists to enter into consultation agreements with certified nurses, certified nurse-wise women, certified nurse nurses and medical assistants as of December 16, 2020. Other new rules are being adopted by the Ohio State Medical Board of Ohio and the Ohio Board of Nursing (for certified nurses, certified nurses and certified clinical nurses) to define the standards and requirements for these advanced health care providers to manage a patient`s drug therapy under a consultation agreement. OSMA says using the Pharmacists Advice Bill – Ohio State Medical Association, 6/10/15 Ohio House has adopted the updated consultation accord sorgon legislation – Rep. Stephen Huffman, 6/30/15 Hospitals, outpatient clinics and all physicians who have clinical agreements with pharmacists should look into the physician`s rules that were adopted by the Ohio Medical Council, which came into effect on October 31, 2020. These new rules include updates to current consultation agreements for the management of patient therapies and new medical requirements. A new medical requirement, for example, requires the physician to discuss with each patient the extent and role of the executive pharmacist in the consultation agreement and seek the patient`s consent before the pharmacist directs the patient`s drug treatment. “Simply put, this bill is a game change for all pharmacy practice environments – the opportunities for pharmacists to offer more practical services than a major member of the health team have never been greater.
