talking bubbles


The College of Pharmacists of BC in conjunction with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC, the BC College of Nursing Professionals and the Ministry of Health have been working on combining the duplicate methadone (MMT) prescription form and the duplicate controlled prescription form to simplify and streamline the prescribing of controlled drugs, specifically therapies for opioid agonist treatment (OAT).  

This change is intended to help provide clarity on and improve the prescribing of OAT prescriptions. It also aligns with the recent updates to the Provider Regulation under the Pharmaceutical Services Act
