Resolution No: 113-5-17
Title: Adjudication of Concurrent Disciplinary Actions
Action: PASS

WHEREAS, the authority of state boards of pharmacy to enforce concurrent sister-state disciplinary actions can be an effective mechanism for regulating multi-state practices; and

WHEREAS, the potential for concurrent sister-state disciplinary actions may impact the initiating state board of pharmacy to fully adjudicate a matter;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that NABP encourage state boards of pharmacy that are reviewing another board’s imposition of a disciplinary action to consider forgoing sister-state disciplinary action absent direct patient impact or harm in their own states; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that NABP collaborate with state boards of pharmacy to provide guidance on defining and enforcing qualifying concurrent sister-state disciplinary actions, particularly those that involve direct patient impact or harm in states other than the initiating board.

(Resolution passed at the 113th Annual Meeting in Orlando, FL.)
