A human touch
Readily available without an appointment, the pharmacist is the accessible and reassuring health professional. As a patient’s point of contact with the healthcare system, the pharmacist takes the time to answer patients’ questions, reassure them and refer them as needed.
The practice of pharmacy is also a collective effort: physicians, nurses and technical staff, and patients collaborate daily with the pharmacist.
A medication expert
The pharmacist provides pharmaceutical care in a variety of settings: community, hospital, long-term care, etc., and ensures the optimal therapeutic care plan for the patient. The pharmacist may also prescribe certain medications for simple treatments, adjust certain dosages independently and even order certain lab tests.
Practicing in French
Studies carried out as part of the program's implementation showed a real shortage of pharmacists able to express themselves in French in minority setting. Given the increasing importance of this role in primary care, Francophone pharmacists are key players in the process of solving problems of access to care in French.
