The Pharmacy Newscapsule

The Pharmacy Newscapsule is a newsletter that is published regularly by the Division of Quality Assurance (DQA). This newsletter is a means of providing up-to-date information to staff who survey health and residential facilities regulated by DQA.

The material is presented with a "surveyor focus"; however, the information has been informative and helpful to providers and others as well. Therefore, we are making copies of the newsletter available to you through this web site.

Comments can be directed to Doug Englebert at 608-266-5388 or
