Advancing Team-Based Care Project Update

Monday, June 19, 2017   (0 Comments)

NACDD and CDC’s Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention work with state teams from Arizona, Georgia, Iowa, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wyoming on a project to accelerate team-based care to manage high blood pressure using the pharmacists’ patient care process.

The pharmacists’ patient care process (PPCP) supports consistency in the delivery of patient care by pharmacists.

Teams comprising state health departments and their pharmacy partners attended a two-day kickoff workshop in May to begin developing the process for helping pharmacists in their state understand and implement the PPCP as well as collaborative practice agreements (CPA). CPAs are formal agreements between a licensed provider and a pharmacist that allow the pharmacist to perform specific patient care functions according to a protocol.

Teams will collaborate with their state pharmacy association, schools of pharmacy and other partners to host and facilitate an in-state workshop for pharmacists and others on implementing the PPCP and CPAs. Later this year, the teams will get together to share with each other the processes they developed and the lessons they learned .

Teams are using the following resources developed by CDC and pharmacy partners to advance this work: 

CDC Resource and Implementation Guide for Adding Pharmacists to the Care Team 
Methods & Resources For Engaging Pharmacy Partners   
Using the Pharmacists' Patient Care Process to Manage High Blood Pressure: A Resource Guide for Pharmacists
