Pharmacists are the most accessible healthcare practitioner situated in almost every community in Alberta and open extended hours to serve patients. Unfortunately, with the services pharmacists provide, pharmacies have been and continue to be the target of robberies.

The Alberta Pharmacist’s Association has developed resources for pharmacists in light of the ongoing environment in which they practice. The association also provides a wellness program where pharmacists can access chartered psychologists for province-wide confidential counseling.
