Dr. Ross Tsuyuki, BSc(Pharm), PharmD, MSc, FCSHP, FACC
Professor of Medicine – Cardiology, Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry, University of Alberta

I will review recent clinical trial evidence of the impact of pharmacist prescribing and laboratory testing in Alberta in patients with, or at risk for, cardiovascular diseases.
