2.0.6. For the purposes of subparagraph j of the second paragraph of section 2, a health professional who is legally authorized to prescribe drugs or other substances and who, with the consent of the person concerned, writes a prescription in the form of a technology-based document must use the ETP service established by the Board to transmit it. Consenting to ETP implies consenting to the prescription’s being sent to the Board and stored by it. The health professional must inform the person concerned accordingly.
When requested to fill an electronic prescription, a pharmacist practising in a community pharmacy may obtain the prescription from the Board after checking the identity of the person concerned and communicating that person’s name and unique identification number to the Board. Requesting to have the prescription filled by a specific pharmacist implies consenting to the Board’s giving that prescription to the pharmacist.
The health professionals referred to in the first and second paragraphs must hold and use a certificate issued in accordance with section 520.3.3 of the Act respecting health services and social services (chapter S-4.2) when sending an electronic prescription to the Board or obtaining such a prescription.
The obligations set out in paragraphs 9 and 10 of section 520.6 of the Act respecting health services and social services apply to the Board, with the necessary modifications.
