Feedback for Seeking Feedback on Proposed Implementation Timeline for NAPRA's Sterile Compounding Standards

Pharmacy Technician  ·  May 23, 2016

Two years is not enough time for hospitals to implement these changes and meet criteria. With our current state of affairs in this province and the gov't we have in power, there will be no money allocated to this endeavour. Hospital foundations will have to raise the funds. There simply wont be enough in the budget to renovate and provide the level of staffing. The face of pharmacy is changing and I am not sure it is for the better. Hospitals will be forced to outsource all sterile preparation work to private firms with investors who have the money to build and staff these facilities. One step closer to privatization of pharmacy services all together. You will need to look at each facility's strategic plan and determine on a case by case basis what timelime is appropriate. Pharmacy Technicians havee been fighting for recognition and good secure employment for many years and I believe this will lead to a loss of jobs for us.
