Collaborative Practice Agreement Spotlight

In partnership with the Florida Department of Health, the University of Florida College of Pharmacy continues efforts to foster awareness and adoption of Collaborative Practice Agreements through completion of the Collaborative Practice Agreement certificate program continuing education training opportunity. The continuing education course will train participating pharmacists on establishing Collaborative Practice Agreement with local physicians in accordance with national and state statutes. The goal of this training is to expand the use of Collaborative Practice Agreements to enhance delivery of quality comprehensive Medication Therapy Management for patient-centered care and improve medication adherence as a form of self-management for patients with chronic disease, with a specialized focus on high blood pressure and high blood cholesterol. Additional partnered continuing education opportunities will be offered as a three part webinar series.

What do our students have to say about Collaborative Practice?

I thoroughly enjoyed UF’s Collaborative Practice Agreement class. I feel it has enhanced my knowledge of various chronic conditions that require medication management along with providing a great walkthrough on how to compose and market a CPA. I would certainly recommend it to any person who works in or wants to integrate themselves into a health care team setting“.
