Comprehensive updates to the current Tennessee Board of Pharmacy Rules are effective as of February 20, 2017.
As TPA communicated to members in November, these updated Board rules contain several important changes to current Tennessee Board of Pharmacy Rules. Many of the changes noted in the rules document (http://share.tn.gov/sos/rules_filings/11-14-16.pdf) create additional waiver provisions to allow the Board of Pharmacy greater regulatory flexibility with respect to the rapidly changing practice of pharmacy. Some major changes include establishment of collaborative pharmacy practice rules and a new chapter specifically for long-term care pharmacy practice. TPA has created a synopsis of all the major changes, which can be found by CLICKING HERE or visiting tnpharm.org/2.20.17-BoP-Updates.
