Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee

Ensuring Safe, Effective and Affordable Medications for Oregonians

The Pharmacy and Therapeutics (P&T) Committee is an 11-member advisory committee of physicians, pharmacists and consumer representatives. The Committee performs drug use reviews and advises the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) on which prescription drugs should be included on any preferred drug list (PDL) established by OHA.

OHA contracts with Drug Use Research and Management (DURM) to administer and lead P&T meetings. DURM is a project of Oregon State University's College of Pharmacy. Complete meeting agendas, meeting packets, written testimony, and OHA recommendations are available on the DURM Meetings Page.

Public Engagement & Testimony

OHA values public input. P&T Committee meetings are open to the public* and there is opportunity for public testimony at each meeting.

Please see the P&T Operating Procedures for information on how you may provide public comment, Committee processes, including information on how the DURM group assesses quality and grades evidence.

Anyone providing public testimony (either in person or in writing) will be required to complete a Public Comment/Testimony Declaration form to disclose all conflicts of interest. Completed forms must be submitted with written testimony before the meeting and must be submitted at the meeting for in-person testimony. Email completed forms to DURM at

OHA Pharmacy and Industry Relations

OHA values transparency in all of its operations and programs. In response to a call for even more transparency from the public regarding OHA’s meetings with representatives of the pharmaceutical industry, OHA has developed a new policy to guide the request, scheduling and topics of discussion for meetings. 

This policy begins on January 2,  2024. 

Every company interested in meeting with OHA pharmacy staff should read the policy in its entirety. If you want to meet with OHA staff prior to 2024, please note that each company can meet with OHA Pharmacy Team staff one time within a 12-month period.
