Pharmacist Awareness Month

Every March Pharmacist Awareness Month takes place in Saskatchewan and across Canada. During this month, the over 1300 pharmacists in the province want the public to know about the increasing number of clinical services they can provide to improve patient care. As one of the most trusted professionals in Canada, pharmacists provide care where and when you need it, in hospital and community settings.

Pharmacists are able to prescribe medications, provide a one-on-one review of your medications, work with you to improve health conditions and chronic diseases, counsel on tobacco cessation and soon pharmacists will have the ability to administer medications by injection. Pharmacist Awareness Month allows a showcase of these and other services so that patients know their options when it comes to health care.
