INFO – TOPIC: What makes your pharmacist the medication expert on your healthcare team? Today’s pharmacists complete at least five years of university education which includes in-depth training in physiology, microbiology, pathophysiology, clinical biochemistry, pharmacology, toxicology, and pharmaceutical care. And many pharmacists take additional post-graduate training in order to provide specialized support in areas like geriatrics, diabetes, women’s health, asthma and more. Find out more about what makes your pharmacist a healthcare expert, and how the various services offered at your local pharmacy (like MedsCheck reviews, prescription drug recycling programs, clinic days and more) can help improve your health and well-being.
