As part of Ontario’s Action Plan for Health Care, the role of pharmacists in Ontario has now been expanded. Pharmacists in Ontario can now:
- Administer flu shots
- Renew or adapt existing prescriptions
- Prescribe medication to help people quit smoking
- Demonstrate how to use an asthma inhaler or inject insulin
- Support patients who have a chronic disease, such as diabetes, and monitor their condition
