Along with all Albertans, the Alberta College of Pharmacists extends its deepest sorrow to all residents of Fort McMurray for their great loss during this extremely devastating, difficult and emotional time. Your bravery and courage under these formidable circumstances is beyond what most of us can ever understand.
In this stage of crises, many individuals may require pharmacy services to ensure their drug therapy is continued. The college has provided guidance and direction to all community pharmacies across Alberta to assist in providing pharmacy services to displaced individuals requiring drug therapy.
If you require support or assistance from a pharmacist, please visit any local community pharmacy.
In the event that individuals may require narcotics, or controlled drugs containing opiates or benzodiazepines, the college urges you to consult with a physician.
Please know that your health and wellbeing is our top priority and that pharmacy teams across the province are concerned and ready to help you. Contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org should you need assistance finding a pharmacist.
We will continue to provide advice and direction to our pharmacists as events continue to unfold.
