C.B.C. talks about PHARMACISTS in ALBERTA
Many years ago I graduated from Pharmacy in Ontario. The pharmacist
s job was clear. The physician prescribed and the pharmacist filled what was prescribed. To-day Dec 17 2018 I was listening to the C.B.C morning show and I learned that in the province of Alberta things had changed. Pharmacists along with physicians made decisions together on HIV problems and the study of blood pressure. The law now allowed pharmacists under certain conditions to prescribe. Studies showed that with pharmacists looking after the blood pressure of older patients the results surpassed that with physicians . With the number of old people now in Canadas population and the costs involved pharmacist’s are now ready to take a greater part in health care.
