Neighbourhood Pharmacies responded to the proposed Cross-Jurisdictional Pharmacy Services Policy that will clarify the responsibilities of pharmacists providing care to patients outside of Ontario.
Neighbourhood Pharmacies is generally supportive of the proposed policy and recommends only a few changes to provide greater clarity.
- Include a statement reminding registrants that the Virtual Care Policy may also apply.
- Registrants should inform patients that they are licensed to practice in Ontario.
- Registrants should confirm the patients drug plan eligibility.
