This episode will be about the pharmacy situation in Newfoundland and Labrador.

We will explain the difference between the chains drugstores and mass retailer and the independent community pharmacy.

We will also discuss the situation in the rest of Canada.

Generic drugs, lowering prices, supply, medication and disease management.

We will touch on the work that CICPO has done and is doing to maintain and build the best pharmacy network in the country.

We will talk with pharmacy owners and pharmacists about how they feel about the current situation.

We will talk about the use of the independent pharmacy model to manage diabetes and collaborate with your doctor on all kinds of chronic illnesses.

Why CICPO and PANL are two different entitites with their own mandates. Why the two groups cannot sit at one table to negotiate or discuss any provider agreement with either government or private insurers.

How CICPO believes the government can save tens of millions of dollars - and what the government has ignored to date.

Join us or better yet call us with questions - if they require an answer from a pharmacist - we can direct you from there or a pharmacist will be available for the program to answer general questions such as explaining medication and disease management.
