This was an unprecedented year for the pharmacy profession. The pandemic has highlighted, more than ever, that pharmacy professionals play a central role in the healthcare of patients and are integral to the team of healthcare providers that deliver care to patients every day.

Now, we are ready for what’s next!

At OPA, we have been working on providing support for our members through the pandemic and are poised to take advantage of proposed changes to regulations that will expand pharmacists’ scope of practice and really begin to show what pharmacy professionals can do now and in the future.
