This program provides patients with a comprehensive medication review with our off-site pharmacist. The pharmacist also plays an important role in our other programs at the Dryden Area Family Health Team.
Pharmacists are the drug experts of the health care team. They provide medication assessments and act as a resource for the team, with the end goal of increasing patient safety. They are also responsible for the dispensing and procurement of medications and overseeing the day-to-day operations of the pharmacy.
