Using Pharmacists to Provide Care in Rural Areas

The National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) wrote a blog post highlighting the importance of pharmacists in expanding access to care in rural areas.

The post also provides an overview of the new Pharmacist provider page which provides a state breakdown of scope of practice policy related to pharmacists’ ability to modify prescriptions, prescribe hormonal contraceptives, and prescribe tobacco cessation aids.

The blog post and the website are supported by HRSA through a cooperative agreement with the National Organizations of State and Local Officials (NOSLO).
