The Ontario College of Pharmacists (OCP) publishes practice policies and guidelines to advise registrants of the College’s expectations and to provide direction regarding their practice. Practice policies outline OCP’s expectations relating to pharmacy professionals’ conduct, while re-affirming the values, principles and duties of the pharmacy profession. In addition to providing guidance to the profession, policies serve as a benchmark against which the conduct of the individual pharmacist is evaluated.
