The Drug Interchangeability and Dispensing Fee Act (DIDFA) e-Learning Module is one in a series of learning modules that the College is introducing. It is an overview of key principles in the DIDFA and its related regulations. We recommend that you view this module and refer to the DIDFA legislation as required, as well as the practice policies and guidelines applicable to this legislation.
The estimated running time is approximately two hours but will depend on your individual pace.
Please note that the DIDFA Learning Module is only a tool to support learning the DIDFA and its regulations and is not a comprehensive study resource. It is important to refer to the official legislation for more detailed and current information.
As of June 3, 2016, DIDFA s.4(6)(a) refers
to the written words’ (e.g. no sub) as opposed to the handwritten’ as
is displayed in the module.
Practice Policies and Guidelines
Pharmacy practice policies and guidelines were developed to support the DIDFA and its regulations. Please refer to the OCP website for the policies and guidelines that are applicable to the DIDFA to support your understanding of the legislation.
