Summary of "Advancing pharmacist prescribing privileges: Is it time?"

The rising cost of health care, impact of the aging population, physician shortages, and access to care issues have stressed the U.S. health care system. There is no single solution to combat the complexity of issues concerning the health care system; however, there are potential solutions, such as expanding the role of pharmacists, in efforts to alleviate some stress. Advancing the scope of pharmacy practice with the inclusion of autonomous prescribing authority may enhance access to health care if barriers to pharmacist-provided patient care are removed. Understanding the perceptions of pharmacists, providers, and patients regarding the expansion of prescribing privileges may assist in this effort.
