Primary Care Pharmacists

Our pharmacists work together with patients and physicians to optimize medications (including prescription, natural medicines, and herbal products) and help patients achieve personal health goals through education, counselling, and medication reviews.

Mosaic's pharmacists also support the Tobacco Cessation and Pain Management  programs.

Your primary care pharmacist helps support: 

  • Medication reviews (on prescribed, Over The Counter (OTC), and natural / herbal therapies)

  • Medication reconciliations to confirm what medications patients are actually taking

  • Drug Information: available on consult basis for dose adjustments, drug therapy as-sessment, medication interaction checks, product availability, etc.

  • Drug funding advice: can advise on formulary alternatives for Alberta Health, facilitate discussions with private insurers, or suggest therapeutic low-cost alternatives for medication therapy

  • Health promotion and screenings including blood sugar, blood pressure monitoring and cardiovascular risk assessments

  • Advise and educate on the use of prescription medications, natural medicines and herbal products

  • Assist with tobacco cessation goals including advice on medications to quit smoking

  • Assist with insulin start and titration

  • Ongoing follow-up care to assist patients to reach goals

  • Coordination with specialists/consultants, retail pharmacy, and other Mosaic PCN services
