Feedback for Proposed Changes to the Public Register – Phase 2 (By-law No 3)

Pharmacist  ·  Jan. 9, 2015

I do not agree with the posting of information on the web for anyone to source which is not related to issues which would compromise patient care.
Our entire lives should not be open to scrutiny by anyone who can access the internet. Are we sure the information will be accessed by patients in order to select a pharmacists or could other people in the community access and use it to publicly embarrass someone they know.
i think misconduct should only be show once it is proven and then only a handful of terms be available to enter the information online There should be a time limit imposed for the postings as 20 year old information may not be relevant There should be an appeal process for removal of the postings whereby pharmacists who can show the conduct was a single incident and will not be repeated can have the posting removed sooner Removal at the discretion of the registrar is vague and subject to interpretation-perhaps even differing interpretation as registrars are changed. Perhaps a peer review process for interpretation of public harm could complement this type of removal A yearly review of all misconduct posting for relevance should be automatically undertaken by the registrar No excess details of a misconduct should be posted - there should be a process for the public to request details and their names should be recorded and the member notified there has been a request made

A final thought. Once information is on the internet you can never get it back.... Be wise and careful and reflect on what items in your life you would not want details of on the web
