Feedback for Proposed Revision of the Code of Ethics

Pharmacist  ·  Nov. 1, 2015

The intent is good but does not address the issue of pharmacies owned and controlled by non-pharmacists who are not subject to the Code (this applies to both community and institutional settings).
If cost-cutting means inadequate staffing and/or unsafe practices in the name of "efficiency", how does the College propose to deal with those who employ pharmacists and technicians in these times of casual and contract jobs?
Perhaps it is time to revisit the regulations governing pharmacy ownership. The world has changed since the old charters were created.
