|Board of Pharmacy Redefines Direct Supervision of Technicians
Last fall, rule 64B16-27.4001 related to the Delegation to and Supervision of Pharmacy Technicians; Responsibility of the
Supervising Pharmacist was modified by the Board of Pharmacy. This rule revision was finalized on December 17, 2018
and modified the definition of "direct supervision." The new version of this rule removed the "shoulder to shoulder"
requirement of direct supervision and now describes direct supervision to encompass situations where the supervising
pharmacist is not on the same premises as the technician but may be using “sufficient technology" to provide personal
assistance, direction and approval required to meet the standard of practice for the delegated tasks. What is "sufficient
technology"? How does this benefit the citizens of the state of Florida? Why did we need the change? The FPA is
petitioning the Board to reopen the comment period for this rule so that more pharmacists can weigh in and provide
comment. If you wish to petition the Board as well, please download this letter, sign and mail it to the Board expressing
your concerns. If you wish to support us in this petition CLICK HERE
