The primary purpose of the Pharmacists-at-Risk Program is to assist a colleague with his/her problem, and support them in the recovery resolution process.
If you are experiencing difficulty and request assistance, a meeting would be arranged with two members of the Committee and suggestions made as to the appropriate course of action.
A variety of personal problems can adversely impact the work performance and the lives of pharmacists, as well as the lives of their family members, co-workers and the public. These problems may include: misuse of prescription or other drugs or alcohol, stress, legal, physical , mental or emotional issues.
All calls/inquiries/cases are kept strictly confidential. We operate independently of all other organizations, including the College of Pharmacists of Manitoba.
