What Health Care Services do Alberta Pharmacists Provide?

Pharmacists are doing more for their patients than ever before. Learn more about how Alberta pharmacists can now assess, order lab-based tests, and prescribe for minor ailments.

In July 2022, Alberta expanded the scope of practice for registered pharmacists. These changes give pharmacists the authorization to change prescription drug doses, substitute for generic drugs, and provide refills.

Some pharmacists can also order lab-based tests, provide injection services, diagnose and treat several minor illnesses and ailments. Speak with your pharmacist to find out what additional health care services they can provide for you and your family.
