Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published a guide that provides pharmacists with information and resources to empower them to initiate collaborative practice agreements (CPAs) with collaborating prescribers. The guide, Advancing Team-Based Care Through Collaborative Practice Agreements: A Resource and Implementation Guide for Adding Pharmacists to the Care Team, contains a sample CPA and sample language that can be customized by pharmacists and prescribers using their specific state laws to create a CPA. Cardiovascular disease and hypertension were used as examples of disease states that can be managed using a CPA, but the concepts presented in the guide can also be applied to many other chronic conditions, treatments for acute illness, and preventive health measures.
