Regulatory Project 2016-4 ~ Standing Orders for the Distribution of Naloxone

During the Pharmacy Board's August 10, 2016 meeting, the Board adopted an Emergency Rule authorizing pharmacists to distribute naloxone and other opioid antagonists pursuant to non-patient specific standing orders issued by medical practitioners with prescriptive authority for naloxone.  The Board is in the process of promulgating the rule but needs additional time. During their August 10 meeting, the Board authorized the re-issuance of the original emergency rule until the final rule was published.

Earlier today, the Board filed the required notice with the Offices of the Governor, Attorney General, President of the Senate, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Chairs of the Health & Welfare Committees of the Senate and House of Representatives, as well as the Director of the Louisiana Register.
