Feedback for Proposed Changes to the DPRA regulations

Pharmacist  ·  May 10, 2015

Regarding the DPRA, pre-54 charters should not be allowed to be passed on so that there is movement towards full accountability for all owners. Currently there is one class of owners, pharmacists, who have the education and accountability necessary for the College to regulate the profession in the best interest of the public. Non-pharmacist owners have no license to practice and so are immune from suspension of this license. Non-pharmacist owners also do not have the education necessary to know which products have an acceptable risk benefit profile when deciding which products to carry. As an example, many retail pharmacies continued to sell Kava kava long after reports of liver toxicity surfaced. A pharmacist owner who continued to sell these products could be held to a higher standard than a non-pharmacist owner by the College given their training and education.
