What does being part of the Youth Friendly Pharmacy network entail?
It is pretty simple really. We are asking that you:
The idea is that patients should be able to find and identify a “Youth Friendly Pharmacy” easily. Once at the pharmacy, the patient should have the option of filling out a confidentiality card, typically found as tear-off in the women’s health products aisle or approaching the pharmacy drop off window directly and requesting emergency contraception prescriptive services. From there you can provide your patient with clinical services according to your established CDTA, providing emergency contraception by prescription when clinically appropriate.
In the future you will have the option of adding other youth friendly pharmacy services. Offering additional clinical services is optional, we only ask that you help us keep our directory information up to date by informing us when you are adding or deleting services.
