Feedback for Proposed Changes to the Pharmacy Act (Administration of Vaccines by Pharmacists)

Pharmacist  ·  April 15, 2016

I feel that we should start seeking injection authority for registered technicians as part of this scope of practice expansion. Pharmacists should definitely be involved in the cognitive components of recommending (or hopefully prescribing) and confirming appropriateness of therapy, however the act of administering an injection is a technical role and technicians should be allowed to perform it as a result.
