Yes, I completely agree. Over the last 5 or 6 years our profession has undergone a lot of changes (flu shots and most recently, vaccination services; naloxone dispensing: maid; Rx renewals; more documentation for Medschecks). This is great for patients, but while the workload has increased, the support for pharmacists has not. We are doing more work while the work environment has stayed the same. Wages are not increasing as there is such a large supply for pharmacists (particularly within the GTA). As our scope continues to expand, pharmacists will be stretched even more thin, and stress and fatigue due to long hours and lack of breaks may contribute to patient harm
