Sherilyn Houle and her research team at University of Waterloo studied the clinical effectiveness and patients’ satisfaction with travel medicine services provided by pharmacists with independent prescribing authority. Results were very positive. “We hope pharmacists are encouraged by these results, which show that they can safely and effectively prescribe and inject travel vaccines independently, and it’s a service that patients really appreciate,” says Houle.
