The Government of Yukon met with the Yukon Pharmacists Association, Yukon Registered Nurses Association and the Yukon Medical Association. Ten people identifying as pharmacists, rural permit holders or pharmacist corporations, and 2 members of the public responded to the survey.
What was this engagement about?
The Government of Yukon is updating legislation for pharmacists and rural permit holders (physicians who dispense drugs) to improve pharmacy services and standards. This is part of a larger legislative framework that governs the pharmacies and rural dispensaries where these professionals work.
From April 21 to July 21, 2017, the public was invited to provide feedback on the proposed:
- Pharmacists Regulation;
- Standards of practice for pharmacists;
- Standards of practice for rural permit holders; and
- Code of ethics for pharmacists and rural permit holders.
How will my input make a difference?
We will consider feedback from stakeholder groups and the public in the proposed legislation.
