​Oregon Board of Pharmacy Rules related to Prescriptive Authority and PHPFA Committee

These rules implement the provisions of 2017 HB 2397, by establishing the pharmacist’s authority to prescribe drugs and devices, and via protocols recommended by the multi-disciplinary Public Health and Pharmacy Formulary Advisory Committee. The recommendations from the January, February, and July 2018 Committee meetings are codified in the Formulary and Protocol Compendia. The rules articulate the authority for an Oregon licensed pharmacist, licensed and practicing in Oregon to voluntarily participate in providing patient assessment and patient care services that may result in the issuance of a prescription by a pharmacist. 


The rules describe the Board’s compliance expectations for prescribing from the formulary and protocol compendia. Standards defined include (1) education and competency, (2) patient assessment, and determination of inclusion, exclusion and referral criteria (3) collaboration with other healthcare providers, including mandated notification (4) treatment and follow-up care planning, (5) documentation and record-keeping, and (6) prohibited practices.​
