Pharmacists in Newfoundland and Labrador are now able to administer medication by inhalation and injection, including flu vaccines, as the Provincial Government has signed off on new regulations under the Pharmacy Act.
In order to provide these services under the new regulations of the Pharmacy Act, pharmacists will be required to complete additional training and adhere to standards developed by the Newfoundland and Labrador Pharmacy Board.
Newfoundland and Labrador will also begin regulating pharmacy technicians in 2015! The regulation of pharmacy technicians helps fulfill two of the Board’s primary goals: protecting the public and optimizing the use of pharmacy professionals’ skills.
