We Provide Several Services For Your Convenience and Satisfaction
Medication Review Services
If you have been prescribed at least five medications in the last six months and you are a BC resident with a valid BC Services Card, you may benefit from Medication Review Services. The aim of the service is to help British Columbians better understand their medications. When you understand your medications – from why you are taking them, when to take them, and how to best take them – you make informed decisions and have greater ownership of your overall health.
Blister packaging of medications is way of simplifying medication administration for anyone with a complex medication regimen, disabilities, inability to keep track of their meds.
In Blister packs,
medications are packaged into easy to use weekly cards.
These cards organize the medications to ensure that the correct medication is taken at the correct time each day. For each day of the week, the medications are packaged into four convenient time slots: morning, noon, evening and bedtime. When a patient chooses to have their medications blister packaged, the pharmacist reviews the medications to ensure that they are packaged in the appropriate time slots and that there are no drug interactions. This review occurs each time medications are packaged and when new medications are added to the regimen.
Patients can choose to either pick up their blister packs, or have them delivered on a weekly, biweekly, or on a monthly basis. These deliveries and pick-ups are automatically scheduled, so that your medications are ready for you the day before your blister package is scheduled to start!
The benefits of blister packages for the patient and/or caregiver are many and include:
- SAFETY: The patient gets the correct medication at the proper times. No double dosing or missed doses. Blister packaging saves lives.
- ADHERENCE: It is easy to see if the medications were taken, and if there were any missed doses.
- PROFESSIONAL MONITORING: The pharmacy staff will fill your prescriptions for you and call you if you forget to pick up your medication, or deliver for you on your scheduled days.
- CONVENIENCE: No more fussing or organizing your medications on your own. No more guessing when to take your medications.
