CDTM Bill Has Passed!

On September 14, 2015, the Collaborative Drug Therapy Management (CDTM) Bill that passed The New York State Assembly and Senate was signed into law by the Governor. So, it’s now official.

The bill permits CDTM to be practiced in all hospitals, not just teaching hospitals, along with diagnostic and treatment centers and hospital-based outpatient departments. It also permits the practice in nursing homes that have an on-site pharmacy.

We would like to encourage and support new collaborative practice agreements. For information and tools, please go to the NYSCHP website, advocacy button, and then choose CDTM on the drop down list. Or use this direct link: CDTM Page. You will find resources,on how to develop a CDTM practice as well as an example consent form.

And if you’d like to be put in touch with another program with a CDTM practice, we would be happy to do that as well.

Last, stay tuned for more advocacy efforts for the coming legislative session, during which we hope to further expand CDTM and advocate for technicians certification. Once again, we will need the voice of our entire membershp to help make that happen.
