Proposed Cross-Jurisdictional Pharmacy Services Policy

Neighbourhood Pharmacies' Submission to the Ontario College of Pharmacists

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.

  1. Include a statement reminding registrants that the Virtual Care Policy may also apply.
  2. Registrants should inform patients that they are licensed to practice in Ontario.
  3. Registrants should confirm the patients drug plan eligibility.
