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

Pharmacist  ·  April 19, 2016

Although I support the changes to the regulations because it allows our profession to provide better care for our patients, the College needs to protect the public by having additional oversight on pharmacies as a result of these changes. The additional workload that is generated by these changes needs to be accounted for, so that errors due to inadequate resources does not become a risk to the public (e.g. flu shot season was very disruptive to workflow and created some near misses). Dedicated injection pharmacies would be a potential solution to this problem.
