The College of Pharmacists of BC is proposing to the Ministry of Health to expand the scope of practice for pharmacists to be able to prescribe in collaboration with physicians and nurse practitioners in hospital and outpatient clinic settings.

CSHP BC Branch is working to engage the public, healthcare workers and government officials to obtain support for pharmacist prescribing.
