GUEST SPEAKER : Maxine Tenander
David Legge introduced Maxine Tenander who graduated from the University of Toronto with a degree in Pharmacy and has practiced her profession in Thunder Bay since 1972.
Maxine is a member and past president of the Ontario College of Pharmacists. The College was incorporated and the Pharmacy Act came into existence in 1871 instrumental in establishing Provincial standards of practice including appropriate documentation.
The Health Protection Act of 2007 enabled the practice of Pharmacy Technicians who perform tasks to help free up the Pharmacists professional time.
Pharmacists provide services for health maintenance and for the appropriate use of pharmaceuticals for those who are ill.
The Pharmacist's scope of practice has evolved and expanded from the 20th to the 21st century becoming an integral member in a multidisciplinary health care team including medication checks to prevent adverse effects and cross reactions, home care, diabetic care, smoking cessation and more recently working in conjunction with the health care practitioner to adapt, ie. alter the dose or dosage form or route of administration of certain medications and extend, ie. prescribe and provide additional quantities of certain drug presciptions.
Maxine was thanked by Jim Colquhoun.
