Description

Legislation and Rules Consultant - Health Services Consultant 4

Pharmacy Commission

The Opportunity

Within the Division of Health Systems Quality Assurance, the Pharmacy Commission regulates the practice of pharmacy and the distribution, manufacturing, and delivery of pharmaceuticals within and into the state. The commission protects and promotes public health and safety by issuing licenses, registrations, and certifications to qualified persons and entities and responding to complaints or reports of unprofessional conduct.

The commission is currently engaged in a comprehensive rule re-write project. The scope of the project is to modernize the rules around the practice of pharmacy in Washington State. The project includes developing a new set of rules that would replace the commission's existing thirty-four chapters of administrative rules. This work will also include developing regulations for the entire drug supply chain from manufacture, to wholesaler and end user as well as other drug-related facility licenses.

As a Health Services Consultant 4, you will take a lead role and provide technical assistance in the development, review, analysis, and impact of rule development, health legislation, and policy and interpretive statements for the commission. This position is the unit specialist on rules and related policy issues affecting the commission and HSQA.

You will have the opportunity to act on behalf of the commission and HSQA in discussions of policy issues with the public, elected officials, elected official representatives, Governor-appointed board and commission members, and HSQA program staff. You will also be coordinating work to ensure a consistent process for rulemaking, and for prioritizing rulemaking workload. Learn more about HSQA and the Pharmacy Commission.
