I petition to remove the requirement that a patient care team physician’s name be included on prescriptions for Schedule II-V drugs- this  seems to be a step that can be avoided- for one all EMRs do not have the ability to do this which has potential to hinder patients care- and PA's should have the authority to rx scheduled drugs without having a potential arbitrary patient care team physician on the rx who knows nothing about the patient.
