    Yes - it would help us all.
    Any one good at flow-charts - would keep it in the register then!

    2018 AD : Modern Man : I shopped, I clicked, I collected.
    How times change.

      Doing this from memory but main changes are:


      They are no longer specifying how we keep CD Registers just what we put in it. (So the NPA saying you must have their new yellow books is crap)


      We don't need to record which pharmacist gave out CD


      If the person that collects the Rx is a Healthcare professional we must record their name AND ADDRESS


      Everything else is same as before, I believe.

      Other change which came in in January is that signed orders for CDs must now be on official CD requisition forms and sent to PPA with Rxs

        also a question... it's alright NOT to ask the patient / patient rep. for ID if I know them, right??? (I just put 'No' in the register at the moment) I just thought it's 'kinda offensive' if I 'suddenly' asking them for IDs when I haven't done it before (especially with all the daily addicts if you know what I mean... ) Do I need to specify every time I put 'No' as to why I didn't ask for their IDs?

          My boss usually writes "Known" I would have thought that was enough.

              I though that it was Sch1 or whatever because the generic name of the prep is on the cover and the brand name on the page but I'm told that I should put the generic name here

              Very confusing isn't it
