Pharmacist Provider Status

 

Pharmacists’ services have grown well beyond functions tied only to dispensing medications. Many pharmacists also provide such advanced patient-centered services as coordination of medications during care transitions, medication management, comprehensive medication reviews with ongoing medication monitoring, chronic disease management, disease education, prevention and wellness services, and patient education. For patients to achieve the full benefit of their medications, pharmacists must be part of the health care team. The term “provider status” may be used and understood differently by various parties inside and outside of health care. For more information, go to the American Pharmacist Association's website.

What should I do to stay active in issues affecting pharmacy?

As a pharmacist, you need to provide information to your Senators and Representative about how legislation affects your practice.  It is your personal story that has the most impact on if a bill passes or fails.  

To find your senators and representatives, you can visit the Wyoming State Legislature website at http://legisweb.state.wy.us/
