Prescriptive Authority means the ability of a licensed pharmacist to prescribe drugs in the circumstance enumerated in sections 3 and 4 of Part K, and is derived from the existence of a Collaborative Practice Environment. The laws in Saskatchewan allow pharmacists to issue prescriptions under certain circumstances where they are trained to do so.
It is mandatory for all Saskatchewan pharmacists to complete Level I Prescriptive Authority training (including Minor Ailment Part 1 training if practicing in a self-care environment) for membership. The training is offered through the Continuing Professional Development for Pharmacy Professionals (CPDPP).
