April is Cancer Awareness Month

A cancer diagnosis can be a very confusing time.  Your pharmacist is an important member of your healthcare team who can help.

Some of the ways your pharmacist can help are:

  • Medication Reviews
  • Provide advice on reducing medication side effects
  • Counselling on medications
