Survey of Pharmacy Law

Revised and published each December, the Survey of Pharmacy Law serves as a guide through the maze that is pharmacy law. Through its summary charts and explanations, the Survey shows how the state boards of pharmacy are organized, how they function, and their requirements for licensure (pharmacist, pharmacy technician, pharmacy, and wholesale distributor) and licensure transfer. The Survey also contains information on state electronic prescription transmission, continuing education, drug control regulations, drug product selection, and patient counseling requirements, as well as pharmacist and pharmacy technician census data and dispensing authority of health care professionals. The Survey is produced as a CD and consists of four sections: organizational law, licensing law, drug law, and census data.
