NCSL on the Role of Pharmacists in Rural Areas

The National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) explains how pharmacists can increase access to care, especially expanding access to care, especially in areas facing primary care provider shortages.  The nonprofit, nonpartisan organization provides a state-by-state breakdown of policies allowing pharmacists to participate in the care of patients.  The NCSL is supported by the Health Resources and Services Administration through a cooperative agreement with the National Organization of State and Local Health Officials.
