Final Report, Action Steps Available for "Advancing Team-Based Care through the Use of Collaborative Practice Agreements and Using the Pharmacists’ Patient Care Process to Manage High Blood Pressure."

Posted By Julia Schneider, Monday, August 20, 2018

NACDD and CDC’s Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention worked with seven state teams on a learning program designed to accelerate team-based care using the pharmacists’ patient care process and collaborative practice agreements designed to manage high blood pressure. 

 To kick off the project, State Health Departments and their pharmacy partners attended a two-day workshop to develop a project plan and timeline for disseminating and supporting pharmacists with implementing the PPCP. State Health Departments partnered with their state pharmacy association, school of pharmacy and other healthcare partners to host and facilitate in-state trainings over the year. 

We have several new resources that have been developed as a result of this project. The final, in-depth summary report, including state-specific actions, is now available on the CVH website, in addition to a companion piece which focuses on the action steps and considerations for those looking to implement team-based care.

A presentation on this project will be held at the Annual Public Health Association Meeting, scheduled for session 3387.0, Collaborations, Linkages, and Teams in Pharmacy Practice on Monday, November 12, 2018 at 3 p.m. 

Success stories from each state can be found on the NACDD What’s Working Database at
