Governor Inslee Signs ESSB 5688 Into Law

​​On May 9, 2019, Washington State Governor Jay Inslee signed ESSB 5688 into law marking the second time in five years that athletic trainers in the state have modified the athletic training practice act. This latest legislative effort was aimed at improving title protection for licensed athletic trainers as well as adding language to allow ATs to administer and store OTC medications and allowing ATs the ability to administer epinephrine to someone suffering from anaphylaxis who does not have a prescription. ESSB 5688 also added language requiring licensed ATs to obtain suicide prevention training consistent with other health care professionals in Washington State.
