OCP Mentor Expression of Interest
Thank you for your interest in the role of mentor to provide mentorship to your peer pharmacists and pharmacy technicians.
Mentorship is one of the remediation options available to OCP statutory committees when they review information gathered pertaining to a specific case. Depending on the nature of the case concerns, a committee can require a pharmacy professional to complete mentorship with a mentor as a remediation program. The mentorship can be tailored to address concerns about a professional’s practice formulated by the Inquiries, Complaints and Reports Committee (ICRC) after it has reviewed the case report. Other committees, including the Accreditation Committee and the Discipline Committee, also occasionally require registrants to complete a mentorship with an approved mentor.
If you are appointed as a mentor, you would be expected to:
- Meet with the registrant (the Mentee) for the purposes of reviewing the areas that require remediation (usually between 3 to 5 times over the course of 8 to 12 months). These meetings would be at the registrant’s expense; you would charge the registrant a commercially reasonable rate for your work.
- Develop a learning plan with the registrant to address the issues identified
- Sign a confidentiality agreement with respect to cases and all content developed or reviewed
- Report the results of the mentorship to the Manager of Conduct Operations at the College within a prescribed deadline
To indicate your interest, please complete all the fields in the survey. Once the survey deadline has passed, College staff will contact you to schedule a call at a mutually convenient time to provide you further information and an opportunity to ask any questions you may have about this role.
We appreciate all expressions of interest received. We will reach out to interested registrants based on the College’s priority needs according to geographic location and specific practice skill sets.
Thank you for your interest.
