  • Overview

    In the practice of pharmacy, the role that pharmacists play in patient care continues to expand whether reimbursement for these new duties makes progress or not. While lobbyists and a multitude of organizations fight for pharmacists to attain provider status all over the country in an attempt to expand patient care roles, many states, are still making progress expanding care roles through much smaller legislative changes involving the practice of pharmacy. In Texas, the role of patient care has recently been expanded by legislative action granting pharmacists the ability to administer epinephrine auto-injectors in emergency situations. Even this small legislative change can have a big impact on patient care.
