BOH Adoption of QMAP Ch. 24 Revisions + Approved Training Entity Application
On April 19, 2017 the Board of Health adopted our proposed changes to Chapter 24, Medication Administration Regulations. The new rules will become effective July 1, 2017 to coincide with the effective date of some of the legislative changes.
The rule with the proposed amendments may be viewed at https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/cdphe/draft-regulations
What has changed: CDPHE will no longer contract with Vendors/Instructors to teach the Medication Administration Course. Instead, CDPHE will now designate Approved Training Entities (ATE). Beginning April 1, 2017 those interested in becoming an ATE can submit an application, curriculum, content and testing for approval. Once the ATE has received written notification of approval from the department they may start teaching beginning 7/1/17.
Where to find ATE application and additional information: Please visit our website at www.healthfacilities.info and click on Qualified Medication Administration Personnel link.
