PACE assessors and candidates should follow their pharmacy site’s policies (e.g., mandatory vaccination) and physical distancing public health guidelines to protect their patients, their colleagues and themselves.
PACE assessors are frontline pharmacists whose first priority is providing care for their patients while safeguarding themselves, their staff and their patients. Not all pharmacists who have undergone the screening and training processes to become a PACE assessor are currently available.
Candidates may have fewer options when selecting their PACE practice site. They may also experience a longer response time from their proposed assessor as the assessor considers their capacity, physical spacing and scheduling requirements to accommodate a PACE candidate at their practice site. The candidate’s patience and understanding regarding limitations related to the COVID-19 pandemic are appreciated.
