CPP SITE VISITS TO BEGIN -
The North Carolina Medical Board and the North Carolina Board of Pharmacy will soon begin conducting random site visits of clinical pharmacist practitioners (CPP) to ensure compliance with certain Board rules, most specifically, 21 NCAC 32T. 0101 and 21 NCAC 46.3101.
CPPs selected for review will be given 48 hours notice of the site visit.
A similar program is currently in place for physician assistants and nurse practitioners.
For guidance on what CPPs are expected to have available for review, view the Clinical Pharmacist Practitioner Site Visit form.

A Clinical Pharmacist Practitioner (CPP) is a licensed pharmacist approved to provide drug therapy management, including controlled substances, under the direction of, or under the supervision of a licensed physician. Only a pharmacist approved by the Pharmacy Board and the Medical Board may legally identify himself/herself as a CPP.
