Pharmacy Scope of Practice Review

HPRAC has submitted a report to the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care  on the review of the scope of practice of pharmacy as part of its report to the Minister on Mechanisms to Facilitate and Support Interprofessional Collaboration among Health Colleges and Regulated Health Professionals: Phase II, Part I. 

In preparing this advice, HPRAC took the following steps:

The profession of pharmacy was invited to submit recommendations for changes in scope of practice to enhance interprofessional collaboration and assist members to work to the maximum of their scope of practice. The Ontario College of Pharmacists responded with a submission, and the Ontario Pharmacists' Association made a complementary submission in response to HPRAC's request.
