Provider status profiles in Pharmacy Today: APhA needs YOU!

APhA’s Pharmacy Today magazine features a monthly provider status story of a pharmacist providing patient care services. The magazine began publishing its series of provider status profiles in October 2013. Now we’re looking for a few (more) good stories to help advocate for provider status recognition. Do you have a story of a patient encounter that illustrates both the value of pharmacist-provided care and the constraints of practicing without provider status? Are you an APhA member eager to articulate why patients need access to, and coverage for, pharmacists’ patient care services? If so, please submit your idea with the subject line Provider Status Profile Submission to dyap@aphanet.org for consideration by APhA staff.
