This course examines State of California and Federal legal requirements associated with pharmacy practice and operations including regulation of pharmacy personnel, pharmacies, pharmacy departments, controlled substances, dispensing functions, and prospective drug review and counseling. Case-studies will allow students to make decisions based upon legal and/or ethical reasoning. By using the Self-Assessment form for community/hospital outpatient pharmacies in conjunction with the course, the student will be familiar with materials on the California Pharmacy Jurisprudence examination (commonly abbreviated as the CPJE). CPJE is a standard examination created by the California State Board of Pharmacy to examine an individual’s competency and knowledge so that he or she may be given a license to practice pharmacy in the State of California. The CPJE tests knowledge of pharmacy law, both state and federal. It is a prerequisite to obtaining a pharmacy licensure in CA.
