We want to hear from you!

As you know, a commitment to lifelong learning is a fundamental requirement of all healthcare professionals.

OCP is currently working on improvements to the Continuing Education section of our website. Please help by telling us about your CE preferences so we can make changes that work for you.

Complete our CE Survey. It should only take about two minutes. 

The CE section on the website provides links to a variety of relevant CE options for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians. 

Survey deadline: April 20, 2015. 

Thanks for helping to make our website better!


Reminder: Seeking feedback on proposed changes to the DPRA regulations

The Drug and Pharmacies Regulation Act (DPRA) legislation and its related regulations provide the framework for the Ontario College of Pharmacists to regulate pharmacy practice sites in Ontario.

The College is currently seeking feedback on proposed revisions to the regulations related to the DPRA — Ontario Regulation 58/11.

Some of the changes come as a result of the passing of Bill 21: Safeguarding Health Care Integrity Act, 2014, which extends the College's authority to license and inspect pharmacies within public and private hospitals, as well as future authority over institutional pharmacy locations.

Proposed changes:

  • Outline performance-based expectations for pharmacy practice sites – including hospital pharmacies 
  • Allow for flexibility as scopes of practice and technology are continually evolving
  • Remove duplication
  • Are very high-level without a lot of specifics 
  • Look to standards, policies and guidelines to address specifics

More information and to provide feedback. 

Update: We received several requests for a document tracking just the proposed changes. We've added it to the DPRA consultation page under "Common Questions". 

Feedback deadline: May 10, 2015
