PHARMACIST PRESCRIBING - One Year Later April 16, 2008 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM Royal Mayfair Golf & Country Club, Edmonton, Alberta Format: In Person Margaret Wing, Director of Professional Services, Alberta Pharmacists’ Association xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx In April 2007, Alberta pharmacists were given legal authority to prescribe some medications and administer drugs by injection. One year later 92% of Alberta pharmacists have the authority to prescribe through adaptation of a prescription or in an emergency. Last fall at the completion of a pilot project, fifteen pharmacists, eight of whom are in Edmonton, now have additional prescribing privileges and can fully manage a patient’s drug therapy. It is expected other pharmacists will apply for this additional prescribing authorization now the pilot project is complete. Margaret Wing will provide information on the review process for pharmacists, their scope of authority and the relationship of the pharmacist with primary care physicians and their patients. She will also speak on what employers and employees can expect in the future with regard to the evolving role of pharmacists in patient care.
