Prescriptive Authority

Prescriptive Authority means the ability of a licensed pharmacist to prescribe drugs in the circumstance enumerated in sections 3 and 4 of Part K, and is derived from the existence of a Collaborative Practice Environment. The laws in Saskatchewan allow pharmacists to issue prescriptions under certain circumstances where they are trained to do so.

 

Legislation

See Part K- Prescribing of Drugs on page 42 to 48 of the SCPP Regulatory Bylaws and The Drug Schedules Regulations, 1997 to view legislation related to prescriptive authority.

 

Training

It is mandatory for all Saskatchewan pharmacists to complete Level I Prescriptive Authority training (including Minor Ailment Part 1 training if practicing in a self-care environment) for membership. The training is offered through the Continuing Professional Development for Pharmacy Professionals (CPDPP).
