Resolution No: 112-5-16
Title: Task Force on Telepharmacy Practice
Membership Vote: PASS

WHEREAS, telehealth is expanding and impacting the definition and regulation of telepharmacy; and

WHEREAS, advanced technologies are improving and also challenging the regulation of the practices of telehealth and telepharmacy; and

WHEREAS, there are telepharmacy practices that are presently operating that may not be known and appropriately regulated by state boards of pharmacy;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that NABP examine the need for a task force to pursue the development and adoption of licensing processes that protect the public, retain board of pharmacy jurisdiction for such practices, and allow for the development of practice models that are not unnecessarily restricted.

(Resolution passed at the 112th Annual Meeting in San Diego, CA.)
