Pharmasave announced that its pharmacists have been trained to be leaders in providing medication therapy management programs.
This includes reviewing medications for appropriateness, identifying potential problems such as drug interactions, alternative therapies and contraindications and patient counselling on appropriate use.
“Our pharmacists have been leaders in medication management services for many years and we want to raise awareness with consumers of this valuable service, particularly among the senior population,” said Allison Nourse, Pharmasave national professional services manager. “These services are core to our philosophy of care and we’re proud of our dedicated team of health care professionals, committed to improving the health outcomes for Canadians in communities across the country.”
In addition to medication therapy management, Pharmasave pharmacists offer access to a wide variety of exceptional patient care programs, including injection services such as flu shots and other vaccinations, travel health, diabetes management and chronic conditions care.
“Pharmasave stores are individually owned and operated, and our pharmacists are extremely committed to providing the best possible care for their patients. They really take the time to get to know their patients and genuinely want to work with them to address any healthcare concerns and provide guidance on how to reach the best possible health results. Our structure lends itself well to providing customized care, as each store has the opportunity to tailor their product and service offerings to best meet the individual needs of their local communities,” added Nourse.
With more than 580 stores in nine provinces, Pharmasave is one of Canada’s leading independent community pharmacies.
