The group of assisting occupations in support of health services includes pharmacy assistants. These support workers are the first to read patients’ medical prescriptions. They must know all the names of existing medications, as well as their uses and usual dosage, because they are the ones who fill the prescriptions. Their work is then checked by a pharmacist who gives the medications to the patients, along with any relevant information. Pharmacy assistants work in neighbourhood pharmacies (e.g. Pharmaprix, Uniprix, Jean Coutu) and in health-care institutions (e.g. hospitals, nursing homes, long-term residential and care facilities). When not serving the public, pharmacy assistants prepare prescribed medication in a small laboratory known as a dispensary. They may also fill syringes with insulin for people with diabetes who are unable to do it themselves. Graduates of this program have also received training that allows them to provide information about nonmedicinal products. For example, they may help someone choose a cane or a pair of crutches.
