Consultation on Sale and Dispensing of Drugs by Physicians and Promotion and Sale of Products now open

Practice standards and professional guidelines are frequently revised to ensure that they are up-to-date and continue to meet the needs of changing practice environments, evolving health-care practices, and stakeholder values.

As directed by the Board, the College will be reviewing all practice standards and professional guidelines related to medicine and commerce. These practice standards and professional guidelines will be reviewed in pairs over the coming year.

As a first step, the College will be focusing on gathering feedback, from both the public and the profession, on the following two practice standards: Sale and Dispensing of Drugs by Physicians, and Promotion and Sale of Products. This consultation will run from October 15 - November 2, 2018.

The public can participate in this consultation by visiting the Consultation page.

Physicians will be emailed directly with a link to the survey.
