Prior to incorporating activities that relate to Minor Ailments into practice, pharmacy professionals must declare to have participated in Minor Ailments Orientation (attended in person or have read the accompanying document). Pharmacy professionals must then notify the New Brunswick College of Pharmacists through a link on their online profile.
New Brunswick pharmacists may prescribe a drug, treatment or device for the treatment of a condition listed in Appendix 2 of the Regulations. Regulations 21.8(1) and 21.8(2) describe this authority in more detail. When searching the College online Directory of Pharmacy Professionals, authorization for Minor Ailments is indicated next to the pharmacy professional’s name and registration number.
