P-10, r. 7 - Code of ethics of pharmacists

Full text
68. In addition to the circumstances referred to in section 63, pharmacists may communicate information that is protected by professional secrecy to prevent an act of violence, including a suicide, where the pharmacists have reasonable cause to believe that there is an imminent danger of death or serious bodily injury to a person or an identifiable group of persons.
In such a case, pharmacists may only communicate the information to a person exposed to the danger, that person’s representative, and to the persons who can come to that person’s aid; pharmacists may only communicate such information as is necessary to achieve the purposes for which the information is communicated.
If the interest of the person exposed to the danger so requires, pharmacists must consult another member of the Order, a member of another professional order or any other qualified person provided the consultation will not prejudicially delay communication of the information.
