It’s a major conflict of interest for MDs to both prescribe &dispense meds to patients: it’s reportable to regulatory college

▶️bit.ly/2Isu71Q

If it’s considered harmful to pts &ethically wrong for MDs, why is @fordnation govt permitting it for pharmacists? 1/2 #onpoli
Cdn MDs have post-graduate training
-Family Doctor has min 10yrs of university training
-Specialist MD has min 12-16yrs of university training
-PLUS ALL MDs have thousands of hrs of hands-on clinical training

Pharmacists only complete basic 4-6yr undergraduate degree 2/2 #onpoli
IDENTICAL to regulatory body of ON MDs, College of Physicians &Surgeons of ON (CPSO), regulatory body of ON Pharmacists, ON College of Pharmacists (OCP), CLEARLY states under “#Accountability” that Pharmacists must “Avoid #ConflictOfInterest.” 3/

ON College of Pharmacists also states: “ethical principle of #Accountability (Fidelity) refers to.. fiduciary duty to be.. faithful custodian of public trust”.. must practice “only when competent to do so” & “refrain from participating in unethical business practices”. 4/

“Pharmacists say pressure to meet profit targets can compromise quality of care... targets that include corporate quotas for prescriptions filled per day & productivity targets... cutting corners.” 5/
