CPAMS

80+ pharmacies throughout Nova Scotia are currently authorized to provide the Community Pharmacist-led Anticoagulation Management Service (CPAMS).   In Fall 2022, an additional 40 will be added.  The service is now publicly funded for adults age 18+ that take the prescription medication warfarin and have a Nova Scotia health card. 

The service includes:

  • A finger prick blood test at the pharmacy, called the International Normalized Ratio (INR), to monitor the blood thinning effect of warfarin.  (Patients no longer need to have a blodd draw at a lab).
  • A review with the pharmacist to assess factors that may be affecting your test results.
  • Pharmacist recommendations that could include continuing with your usual warfarin dose, or the pharmacist prescribing a change to your warfarin dose.  They will also provide other recommendations to assist with managing your medications and other factors that can affect your INR results where applicable. 
  • A calendar print-out with your dosing instructions.
  • Results will also be sent to your family physician or nurse practitioner. 

How does a patient enroll?

Patients may request enrollment from a participating pharmacy location.  Physicians and Nurses can also refer patients to the program using the form below.
