Tips for submitting your additional prescribing authorization application
September 22, 2015
When submitting your application for additional prescribing authorization, it’s important to ensure that all patient information is anonymous.
For the protection of your patients, please ensure their name, personal health number, address, and phone numbers cannot be identified.
If using a black marker, ensure that the patient’s personal information cannot be seen; white out correction tape works well.
You don’t need to mask the physician or pharmacist information. In fact, it’s crucial that assessors know who did what. When several physicians are involved in the patient’s care, it’s important for them to know who you are sending information to, and when.
Please take the time to ensure this is done correctly on both copies, otherwise your application may be returned to you.
