Highlighting the integral role pharmacists play in a health care team, updated State Fact Sheets from the National Alliance of State Pharmacy Associations (NASPA) and the American Pharmacists Association (APhA) are now available. As highlighted in these documents, pharmacists improve the health outcomes of patients with direct services such as vaccine administration, medication therapy management, medication education and counseling, and more. However, some patients and policymakers may be unaware of pharmacists’ training and skills to provide these clinical services.
NASPA’s and APhA’s State Fact Sheets summarize information for state and federal levels, serving as a policy resource for pharmacy practice issues. The latest fact sheets can be found by visiting https://naspa.us/resource/2020-state-fact-sheets/.
