ACP Council is proposing a revised Code of Ethics. Ethics are the foundational framework upon which pharmacists and pharmacy technicians base their day-to-day work. This new code anticipates practice scenarios and technologies not contemplated in the previous version.
In an increasingly complex world, you deal regularly with situations that require analysis and action that are not always simple or straightforward. The ACP Code of Ethics reflects what the profession stands for and reinforces what is unique about what pharmacists and pharmacy technicians contribute to the patient, to society and to the profession. Ethics reflect the soul of the profession.
Review the proposed Code of Ethics and let us know what you think. The 60-day consultation process will end on Feb. 28.
To comment on the draft Code of Ethics, please forward your feedback by Feb. 28, 2009 to:
