Why and How TPA is involved in this program:
Health care professionals, including pharmacists, are at risk for chemical dependency for reasons including greater stress and burnout and easier access to drugs. Impairment creates major problems, not just for personal lives and careers, but in the potential harm which can be inflicted upon the patients who trust their health and lives to the dependability of the pharmacist’s services. Recognizing this, and in genuine concern for both the impaired professional and the integrity of the profession, Tennessee Pharmacists Association has a vigorous program to provide assistance to impaired colleagues.
These two pages contain some of the guidelines by which TPA’s Pharmacists Recovery Network Committee operates and other information you might find helpful if you suspect chemical dependency or other impairment in either yourself or in a colleague.
