Drug Information
The MetroDIS pharmacist provides accurate, unbiased and timely responses to drug-related questions and help solving pharmacy practice problems. Where applicable, supporting documentation is sent via e-mail. In addition to addressing drug-related issues, MetroDIS also provides pharmacy practice advice through the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre pharmacist network. 

Newsletters
Our newsletter, Current Drug Topics is published approximately monthly and provides unbiased information on new drugs and drug products on the Canadian market, as well as information applicable to pharmacists and other healthcare providers. Individual subscriptions to the newsletter/website packages are available to any health-related institution. 

Website 
The MetroDIS website contains helpful and up-to-date drug information for pharmacists and other healthcare providers. Most resources on the website are documents created by the Medication Information, Quality and Safety (MedIQS) team of pharmacists at Sunnybrook. These include IV drug monographs, drug preparation and stability charts, extemporaneous preparation sheets, medication-related policies and procedures, and drug desensitization protocols. Members may use these as references at their discretion.
