Triplicate Prescription Pad – use and re-ordering

Following registration, medical residents receive a personalized triplicate prescription pad which contains fifty prescription forms. A re-order form is included in the pads, with a limit of one pad per order per medical resident. Pads may be re-ordered by phone, fax or email using the re-order form.

Note: The prescriber information will be different from that of other registered physicians – instead of clinic location details, residency program information will be printed. Other areas of the form remain the same.

For more information, refer to the Information for the Prescriber publication or contact the TPP department.
