Appreciation Month




“I am so glad we talked. Thank you!” To this day, I vividly remember this encounter with my patient. I was referred to assess my patient’s compliance to their medications. As I engaged in a dialogue with my patient, it did not take long to figure out that the non-compliance was due to a declining mental health and fatigue because of the pandemic. Canadians are tired and their mental health has really taken a toll during this pandemic. What started as a referral for medication compliance, turned out to be an hour-long conversation where we discussed mental health during the pandemic, coping strategies, and resources available within the community to support Canadians. During this pandemic, most patients are relying on their pharmacists to speak about their mental health and wellbeing. Likewise, pharmacists are often the first healthcare providers to notice changes in a patient’s overall health and wellbeing. As a pharmacist, I am grateful to be a part of the pharmacy profession, which has continued to remain open throughout the pandemic to serve Canadians and be available to talk to patients about any of their health concerns.
