NABP recently amended the Model State Pharmacy Act and Model Rules of the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (Model Act) in its effort to assist the boards of pharmacy as they work to protect the public health. The Model Act was amended by increasing security provisions for pharmacies, adding Model Rules for medical gases, updating electronic prescribing language, and adding language intended to help improve quality and safety in patient care. These changes were incorporated as a result of the Executive Committee-approved recommendations of the Task Force on the Control and Accountability of Prescription Medications and the Committee on Law Enforcement/Legislation. The Model Actis available for download in the Members section of the NABP Web site.
