March 4th – 10th is Pharmacist Awareness Week (PAW) across Canada. Pharmacist Awareness Week began in 1991 with the goal of increasing public awareness of the role pharmacists play on the health care team. PAW has continued for the past 21 years with a new theme and different events being held across the country each year.
Your pharmacist is your “medication expert” as well as an excellent resource for all of your other health related questions. The pharmacist is the most accessible member of the health care team, however is often not thought of as a source for health information. In addition to helping you understand your medication, your pharmacist can help you by: answering questions about your health, treating minor illnesses, administering injections, determining if you need to see your doctor or another member of the health care team and much more! When you have a question about your health, consider asking your pharmacist. For simple questions, no appointment is necessary! If you have a question about your health, stop in to Stafford Pharmacy and speak with one of the pharmacists. You may be surprised by the skills and knowledge your pharmacist holds.
