Non-Vaccine Injectable Medication Administration Training (IM and SubQ)
Recent changes to Wisconsin law allow pharmacists to administer non-vaccine injections once they have completed the appropriate accredited instruction. A series of comprehensive instructional modules are being developed, but for those pharmacists who have completed vaccine administration training, completion of this one-hour presentation, recorded at the PSW Educational Conference on April 6, 2017, and learning assessment will allow pharmacists to administer IM and subcutaneous non-vaccine injections in Wisconsin.
While pharmacists are currently able to administer non-vaccine injectable medication under an emergency rule (as allowed by Wisconsin 2015 Act 290), a permanent rule is in development. PSW expects this permanent rule from the Pharmacy Examining Board will outline the following required components of training in order to administer non-vaccine injections:
While pharmacists who have been trained to provide immunizations (through PSW's program or through another immunization training) are currently able to administer non-vaccine injectable medications under the emergency rule, PSW expects that the permanent rule training requirements (as listed above) will necessitate that pharmacists receive additional training. This one-hour presentation serves as the supplemental training (when added to immunization training) that covers the above requirements. The emergency rule will be in effect until July 3, 2017 (with an extension expected through September 3, 2017), or the promulgation of a permanent rule, whichever is sooner.
*Those pharmacists that have previously completed immunization training and have provided immunizations in Wisconsin, will be qualified to provide non-vaccine injections under the permanent rule if they complete the PSW-DPPD course either at the PSW Educational Conference or online.
Additional drug-specific training modules as well as training modules that complement the minimal requirements are being developed by PSW and the UW-Madison School of Pharmacy DPPD as well.
