KPhA and other Kentucky pharmacy organizations filed a joint letter of support in response to proposed changes to the board-approved protocol regulation 201 KAR 2:380. The letter highlights the efforts of Kentucky pharmacists for their role throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and supports the Board's decision to remove the list of authorized conditions and specific education requirements.Since the approval of 201 KAR 2:380 in December 2017, the Board of Pharmacy has approved 20 protocols that have been used to meet the healthcare needs of communities across Kentucky safely and effectively. In the five years following its passage, we are not aware of any complaints or cases involving patient harm or compromised patient safety.
Instead, the provision of protocol-driven care continues to meet the healthcare needs of communities across Kentucky safely and effectively. Successful implementation of this proposed regulation will ensure continued expanded access to pharmacist-provided care. For the full letter of support, click here.
