Did you know that your pharmacist can do so much more than dispense your medications?
As it is every year, the goal of Pharmacist’s Awareness Month (PAM) is to raise awareness about the important role that your pharmacist plays in your healthcare team. There are so many things that pharmacists can do that most people don’t even realize – our goal this month is to spread that knowledge! The theme for PAM 2015, “Pharmacists: Trusted Care When and Where You Need It,” reinforces the notion that pharmacists are trusted, they provide highly accessible, high quality care, and they can provide a wide range of services to patients.
Over the past several years, pharmacists have been increasing the number of services they are delivering to patients. At the Wellness Pharmacy, we are lucky to have three pharmacists who have dedicated themselves to continuously upgrading their education to make sure that they can offer specialized services to our customers.
For example, two of our pharmacists can administer injections. This means that you don’t have to go somewhere with large wait-times to get your flu shot or travel vaccinations – we can take care of that right in-store!
