Pharmacists are an underused health care resource.

From renewing prescriptions, delivering vaccinations, providing medication management services and prescribing for minor ailments and conditions, Canada’s pharmacists are doing more for their patients than ever before.

When pharmacists can practice to their full scope and training there is:

  • IMPROVED ACCESS to care
  • REDUCED PRESSURE on the health care system
  • MORE SUSTAINABLE health care
  • BETTER VALUE for our health care dollars
  • SHORTER wait times
  • LESS TRIPS to the emergency room
  • LESS PEOPLE needing hospitalization, visiting the emergency room or even needing to book appointments with a family doctor

Expanding pharmacy services makes sense.
