CDTM Bill Extended 1-Year

On July 24, the bill extending CDTM in New York State for an additional year (the CDTM Extender Bill), was signed into law by the Governor.

125 NYS Senate Bill A9715: Glick -- Extends provisions of law relating to authorizing pharmacists to perform collaborative drug therapy management with physicians in certain settings

"This small victory now enables us to focus on a permanent CDTM EXPANSION bill in 2015. However, let's not wait until the legislative session begins in January. With the entire legislature up for re-election in November, this is an excellent time to contact your local legislators and let them know that pharmacists exist, vote and want CDTM expansion for our patients. Thank you."

Elizabeth A. Shlom, PharmD, BCPS
President, NYSCHP
