Revised Virtual Care and Sale and Dispensing of Drugs practice standards published

Following feedback from the Patient Relations, Professional Standards and Ethics Committee and the Ministry of Health, the College’s Virtual Care and Sale and Dispensing of Drugs practice standards were revised to update and strengthen the language regarding PharmaNet requirements. The Virtual Care practice standard was revised to clarify the expectation that registrants must be in BC when documenting in PharmaNet. The Sale and Dispensing of Drugs practice standard was revised to clarify the distinction between expectations of registrants who are using PharmaNet with a practice ID number and those who are using community access to PharmaNet. The College’s Executive Committee approved the revised practice standards for publication on June 22, 2023. Questions regarding these revisions can be directed to communications@cpsbc.ca.
