Additional Prescribing Authorization (APA)

In 2007, the Alberta Government enacted legislation allowing a pharmacist to prescribe schedule 1 drugs.  Since 2012 the Alberta Pharmacists' Association has been helping pharmacists to achieve their Additional Prescribing Authorization designation.

 

Every pharmacist licensed to practice in Alberta and working in direct patient care is eligible to apply for their Additional Prescribing Authorization.
