The Prescription monitoring program
Ask the Iowa Board of Pharmacy to Consider Creating an Educational Training Version of the Iowa PMP
The Iowa Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) is a healthcare tool for registered prescribers and pharmacists which can be used to verify patients’ usage of controlled medications. This program allows for enhanced patient safety and quality of care through the identification of potential diversion, misuse, or abuse of controlled substances.
Learning to use the PMP
Accessing the Iowa PMP is an important duty of healthcare professionals; however, lack of understanding of how to use the PMP may discourage its use. Having an educational training version of the Iowa PMP which could be used in the education of healthcare students and current practitioners would allow for increased understanding and usage of the Iowa PMP.
Sign the letter
We, the undersigned, call upon the Iowa Board of Pharmacy to consider the development of an educational training version of the Iowa PMP to help expand awareness, understanding and use of the Iowa PMP.
