TPA recently announced the creation of an expansive physician-authorized “standing order” regarding the dispensing of Naloxone/Narcan—a fast-acting antidote that can be administered to someone who is actively overdosing on opioids.


On Monday, August 1, an online course through TPA was made available at no cost for pharmacists planning to utilize the TPA standing order. Prior to dispensing or administering an opioid antagonist pursuant to this Standing Order, a pharmacist must complete the online application and obtain a certificate of completion of a one hour ACPE Texas accredited course in coordination with the Texas Pharmacy Association for the purpose of establishing a statewide standard of care.
