Sign or Sticker to Be Developed for Washington Pharmacies That Prescribe and Dispense Contraceptives.
Once available from the Washington Pharmacy Quality Assurance Commission, a sticker or sign may be displayed at Washington pharmacies if their pharmacists are authorized to prescribe and dispense contraceptives under a collaborative drug therapy agreement. The plan aims to increase awareness of the availability of contraceptives in pharmacies. Under House Bill 2681, which was signed into law by Washington Governor Jay Inslee, the Pharmacy Quality Assurance Commission will develop a sticker or sign to be displayed at a pharmacy that initiates or modifies drug therapy related to self-administered contraception. The law goes into effect on June 9, 2016.
