Hot Topic

Hot Topics are pharmacy related discussions which require guidance or resolution from the Pharmacy work group.

Hot Topics Sub-Lists


A hot topic may be raised by anyone.

To raise a hot topic:

  1. Create a wiki page (use an existing wiki page on which the issue is already being discussed, or use the content of this template)
  2. Ensure the wiki page reflects the core of the issue, rationale as to why the issue needs to be resolved, and if possible, a suggested resolution
  3. Flag it as a hot topic by inserting {{Pharmacy Open Hot Topic}} as the first line of text of the wiki discussion
  4. Send an e-mail to the [Pharmacy list] with the subject line "Hot Topic: <some descriptive label>" and include a summary of the issue along with a link to the Wiki page

Resolution process:

  • Hot topics will be reviewed on a regular basis.
  • Upon resolution, a hot topic will be either categorized as
    • resolved - if there are further outstanding actions to be taken by MnM or other committees, or
    • closed - if all action items have been completed
  • Pharmacy will monitor the action items for hot topics categorized as resolved with a view to seeing them move to closed as soon as feasible.
