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.
