  • transfer prescriptions to and receive prescriptions from other pharmacies,
  • ensure the accuracy of a prepared prescription,
  • perform the final check of a prepared prescription and
  • ensure the accuracy of drug and personal health information in patient records

An RPT may only perform these restricted activities if:

  • a pharmacist has assessed the prescription, the patient, the patient’s health history and medication record and has determined that the drug therapy is appropriate for the patient, and

A pharmacist must be available to counsel the patient and to monitor the patient’s drug therapy at some point before the prescription is released to the patient.
