Types of RDLs
There are two types of RDLs:
- A location that is staffed by a regulated pharmacy technician and supervised remotely by a pharmacist who is present at the accredited pharmacy
- An automated pharmacy system
RDLs using an automated pharmacy system must use technology that has been approved by College Council (or submit the technology for Council approval before use). Currently, Council has approved MedCentre as the only acceptable automated pharmacy system for use in Ontario.
All new RDLs are assessed before opening and as part of the routine assessment of their affiliated community pharmacy.
