Conduct of the Ethics Advisory Committee

NOTES

1. Code of Ethics, College of Pharmacists of British Columbia, Value IX: A pharmacist ensures continuity of care in the event of job action, pharmacy closure or conflict with moral beliefs. Obligations: . . . A pharmacist is not ethically obliged to provide requested pharmacy care when compliance would involve a violation of his or her moral beliefs. When that request falls within recognized forms of pharmacy care, however, there is a professional obligation to refer the patient to a pharmacist who is willing to provide the service. The pharmacist shall provide the requested pharmacy care if there is no other pharmacist within a reasonable distance or available within a reasonable time willing to provide the service.
