Forgery Alerts - it's a joint responsibility
August 11, 2015
As of last week, you may have noticed a change in how you have been receiving Forgery Alerts. ACP is now using Industry Mailout – the very same email service we use to send you “The Link”, “ACPnews”, and other important notices.
Occasionally, we will hear from Registrants who do not want to receive the Forgery Alerts; and it is important for us to explain why it is a joint responsibility between the College and our Registrants to tap into this information.
The primary mandate of the ACP is to protect the health and wellbeing of Albertans. An important part of this protection is ensuring the integrity of the drug distribution system. Forgery alerts are a key way we ensure registrants are aware of, and remain vigilant for behaviour that compromises Alberta’s drug distribution and health systems. This core responsibility is shared between the college and our registrants. Staying informed is a crucial responsibility we all share to support quality practice and ensuring patient safety.
