Put a Pharmacist at Work for You
Why have a Clinical Pharmacist in
What does the Pharmacist do at the physician's office?
The pharmacist conducts a Best Possible Medication History (BPMH) with the patient.
One portion of the report goes to the patient:
- Patient consent; Known allergies; Care Card#.
- Medications I take : What I take; Why I take it; How I take it; Special instructions if applicable.
The other portion of the report is left with the physician to file.
(BPMH)-Health care professional
Who Pays for this?
The Government of British Columbia started a program in 2012 which enables Pharmacists to perform Medication Reviews, as a benefit of the British Columbia Health Care
The College of Pharmacy greatly encourages our pharmacist/physician collaborative approach, and the consult is reimbursed by the Ministry of Health.
These reviews are designed to help British Columbians better understand and successfully manage their medications and medical conditions.
