First Aid Requirements for Pharmacists

Pharmacists play an important role in health care, and as a result are held to a certain standard across the industry.  The current industry standard states that pharmacists who provide patient care and/or administer injections must hold a valid certification in Standard First Aid and CPR level C/AED.

It is a requirement of the College for pharmacists to have valid certification in first aid and CPR, at a level equivalent to Red Cross Standard First Aid & CPR/AED Level C, prior to administering any substance by injection. It is also a requirement for administering publicly funded influenza vaccine in the context of the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care’s Universal Influenza Immunization Program (UIIP). These requirements also apply to a pharmacy student or intern practicing under the supervision of an injection-trained pharmacist.

Reference from the OCP Website: https://www.ocpinfo.com/practice-education/practice-tools/support-materials/first-aid-pharmacists/

To register your injection training with the College, you must acknowledge completion of the required First Aid & CPR training. This is a self-declaration and there is no requirement to submit documentation to the College. Pharmacy professionals should retain supporting documentation in a readily retrievable manner.

It has been very beneficial to me. I have Learned plenty of things that will help me in my everyday life learning what to do when people need first aid assistance whether in workplaces. Or elsewhere learning how to properly provide first aid in many ways. The instructor has been very lucid and knowledgeable to have made every body lock in to get himself understood by trainees.

The course was very easy to understand and learn. The instructor, Catherine, was a great teacher and made lessons very engaging with video lessons, explanations, and live demonstrations. Additionally, we were provided with all the necessary materials we needed in order to practice our newly acquired skills and abilities. I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in learning or getting certified in cpr.
