Patients, doctors, health workers join clinical pharmacists in petition

Hospital patients, doctors, and health workers are signing a petition calling for health employers to rescind its announced wage roll back for clinical pharmacists.

-Through the pharmacists daily activities of ensuring appropriate drug selection, dosing, and administration, patients throughout our hospital are spared drug treatment failures, misadventures, and adverse effects," the petition says.  -The pharmacists activities in medication reconciliation and drug prescribing/utilization ensure that unnecessary expenditures on drugs within and following discharge of the hospital are avoided.  These have real economic benefits to the BC health system."

The organizers of the petition ask that you circulate it widely.  The petition is online:
