Since becoming Registrar of the Nova Scotia College of Pharmacists (formerly Nova Scotia Pharmaceutical Society) in 1994, Susan Wedlake has accomplished a number of “firsts” for the profession in Nova Scotia, which have served as models for other provinces. She pioneered the SafetyNETRx program, which helps pharmacies implement quality-assurance measures to prevent medication errors. She took on a leadership role to develop standards of practice under an expanded scope of practice, particularly in the areas of lab information and testing, and assessing and prescribing for minor ailments. And Susan spearheaded legislation to create the new profession of pharmacy technician in Nova Scotia, one of the first provinces in Canada to do so. Susan retired as Registrar in 2015.
