NETfacts: Over The Counter, Self-care

Pharmacists are your friend!

March is Pharmacist Awareness Month (PAM) throughout Canada. This means that all pharmacy associations across Canada (national and provincial) are working together to improve the everyone’s understanding of the expanding role of pharmacists with a theme of “Providing more health care than you know: Ask a pharmacist.”

Most people don’t know that pharmacists are medication experts that are qualified to offer different services beyond just dispensing medications. Asking your local pharmacist about these valuable services can help improve your health at your convienence. Each association is different in regards to services, but check out this video of the pharmacy services offered in Alberta and what the potential each person has with their own self-care!
