Medical directives and out-patient pharmacies
In 2007, the Federation of Health Regulatory Colleges of Ontario released An Interprofessional Guide on the Use of Orders, Directives and Delegation for Regulated Health Professionals in Ontario. The guide is meant as a consensus document, designed to assist with understanding of guidelines, standards and regulations developed by the health profession colleges.
Within the guidelines, the federation outlined the circumstances in which prescriptions can be written pursuant to medical directives. This is lauded at SickKids, as it further advances our ability to meet the needs of our patients.
