2022 Fred T. Mahaffey Award
Iowa Board of Pharmacy
The Iowa Board of Pharmacy received
the 2022 Fred T. Mahaffey Award for its
contributions to the regulation of practice
of pharmacy. Specifically, the Board updated
its rules pertaining to the accreditation and
inspection of wholesale drug distributors,
third-party logistics providers, and others
involved in the distribution of drugs and
devices who do not meet the definition of
a wholesale distributor under federal or
state laws. In addition, the Board adopted
final rulemaking to rescind tech-check-tech
programs and instead adopt the technologyassisted
technician product verification (TPV)
programs. Under the new rules, a pharmacy
may establish a TPV program to redirect
pharmacist collaborative practice, statewide
protocols, and immunizations. The Board
also amended telepharmacy rules to allow the
pharmacist-in-charge (PIC) of a managing
pharmacy to designate another pharmacist to
serve as PIC of a telepharmacy site, as well as
requirements for
the pharmacist's
and licensure,
and training
for technicians.
the award on
the Board's
behalf was Dane Nealson, CPhT,
member of the Board.
