APhA creates tools to help pharmacists navigate reproductive health care for patients
Lauren Walters, PharmD
In response to the Dobbs v. Jackson ruling, APhA has created numerous resources to help pharmacists navigate the nuances of how pharmacy practice has been affected.
Several listening sessions were held to hear directly from members about their personal experiences and perspectives on the topic. The information shared during these sessions will be used to formulate policy and guide APhA efforts going forward.
Additionally, an informational overview of the latest legal and regulatory actions in the states as well as a review of medications that can be used for abortion and emergency contraception was featured as part of APhA’s Pulse on Practice and Policy Open Forum Series. Members can visit https://www.aphadruginfoline.com/Practice/Practice-Resources/Pulse-On-Practice-Policy to watch the recording of this webinar.
The association has created a landing page for reproductive health care that is updated regularly with new resources and information. On this page, definitions of key terminology, APhA statements, and more information can be found.
