In keeping with the principles of openness and transparency, the governing Council of the College has deemed certain information about physicians to be in the public domain. Physician Search, located in the menu to the left, is available to the public to look up information regarding a physician's main office address, office telephone numbers, medical education, qualifications, specialty, language proficiencies, license history, and discipline history.

 COVID-19 - Physician Skills Inventory and Exposure Reporting (3/30/2020) 
   
PHYSICIANS:
Do you have any pandemic skills? 
Have you been exposed to COVID-19?

Work is underway to ensure we have a current record of our physician workforce capacity (including physicians in self-isolation), as well as a record of physician experience, skills or training outside of regular practice that could support a pandemic response.

To obtain these records, we are asking the following of physicians:

 COVID-19 - Prescribing Practice Update (3/26/2020) 
   

Please fax or call in all prescriptions

Physicians are strongly encouraged, whenever possible, to either fax prescriptions directly to pharmacies or call pharmacies to issue verbal orders instead of providing patients with paper copies. Verbal orders are currently permitted for all medications, including those listed on the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (e.g. narcotics, benzodiazepines), per Health Canada’s exemption (see Health Canada’s exemption).

Providing patients with paper copies of prescriptions (from clinics or facilities) increases the risk of forgeries and in our current environment, may increase the risk of viral transmission through increased direct interactions between patients and front-line pharmacy staff and via potential surface contact. A recent correspondence in The New England Journal of Medicine suggests that viral viability on various surfaces may be significant (e.g. 8 hours on cardboard)1

Please help to reduce exposure to front-line health care workers by faxing prescriptions or providing verbal orders for prescriptions.
