Pharmacist  ·  Nov. 28, 2017

Pharmacists are also human beings and needs to fulfill basic needs such as food, using restroom etc. In my experience even 10 minutes break improve the productivity of pharmacists and patient care. Compared to other HCPs such as doctors they are giving free service to their patients. Patients wait double time in doctors office without complain but even 1 min more waiting time makes them impatient. I think we have to change the culture of people regarding pharmacy and pharmacist gradually. Also pharmacist value is decreasing day by day. I think we should return pharmacist dignity. It is really unfortunate that they are paying even 28 to 30 per hour. I think the way we can improve our profession is to separate business from pharmacist job and change it to a system like doctors. This way pharmacist can earn themselves without being dependence to companies. Or at least for their advice and professional information they can get benefit. I also hope the scope of practice can be extended like Alberta college which provide Tx initiation by a program named APA. Pharmacist have good knowledge much more than nurses but not allow to initiate any meds.......
