Feedback for Proposed Changes to the Public Register – Phase 2 (By-law No 3)Pharmacist · Dec. 22, 2014
I have an issue with criminal charges about a member being posted. The charge may be dismissed or the member may be found not guilty.
It would be prudent to post criminal charges AFTER the member had been found guilty. There posting of a guilty finding also has to be related to protection of the public interest.
A member convicted of fraud may or may not be a risk to the public depending on the specifics of the case. A person convicted of scamming senior citizens out of their savings is different than a Martha Stewart who was (knowingly?) guilty of insider trading.
What is the criteria to decide if the charge affects a member's fitness for practice?Reply or Back
