Do I get enough protein in my diet? Canada covers about 40 times the land area of the UK, with a population size only 35 per cent of the UKs. The vast majority live in the narrow strip of the country within 100 miles of the border with the US. There are approximately 31,000 licensed pharmacists in Canada. Around 80 per cent of these work in the countrys 7,000+ community pharmacies. By comparison, the UK has 49,000 pharmacists and 13,000 community pharmacies. The average annual salary for Canadian pharmacists is around C$95,000 (approximately ?59,350). Unlike the UK, where 99 per cent of the population can reach a pharmacy by car within 20 minutes, many Canadians live more than 200 miles from their nearest community pharmacy. The Canadian government has, therefore, made available substantial grants to encourage community pharmacists to move to these remote areas. For this reason, and because the demand for community pharmacists in particular exceeds the supply available from Canadian schools of pharmacy, around 40 per cent of registered pharmacists in Canada originally qualified outside Canada or the US. Comparing practice As in the UK, the role of community pharmacists (and their main source of income) still revolves around supplying and advising on the use of both prescription and over-the-counter medicines. Funding arrangements for healthcare vary between provinces but, generally, the Canadian equivalent to the UKs national insurance scheme covers doctors fees but not prescription drug costs, except for those in receipt of state benefits. However, most Canadian employers provide additional private health insurance, which covers prescription drug costs, as part of a salary and benefits package. The pharmacists role has expanded in recent years, and Canadian community pharmacists are increasingly involved in providing a wide range of other services, many of which are government funded. These include smoking cessation, weight management, MedsChecks (similar to medicines use reviews), anticoagulant clinics, and palliative care services. The situation regarding pharmacist prescribing varies widely between Canadian provinces. In Alberta, for example, all pharmacists were recently given prescribing rights, subject to undertaking appropriate training and demonstrating their ongoing competency in their chosen clinical area(s). Unsurprisingly, this change was vehemently opposed by the provincial medical fraternity but, needless to say, the disasters that were prophesised at the time have not materialised and the service appears to be much appreciated by the public. In some provinces, however, pharmacists can in effect only recommend OTC medicines in much the same way as their UK colleagues. Each province has its own drug formulary, although work is currently being undertaken to produce a federal formulary to cover the entire country. Some provinces, therefore, allow community pharmacists to prescribe to the extent that they can alter doctors prescriptions, where appropriate, to bring them into line with the provincial formulary recommendations. Each Canadian province has its own faculty of pharmacy and graduates, on registering, are only licensed to practise in that province. Therefore, the extent to which prescribing is taught in the undergraduate pharmacy course in each faculty depends on the extent to which its graduates will be expected to prescribe on qualification. Because provincial governments fund many of the services provided by community pharmacies, an increasing number of pharmacists are now employed in primary care, commissioning and monitoring the delivery of these services. Others may work in health centres as part of the integrated healthcare team, in much the same way as some UK pharmacists do. How do I stay safe online? Am I ready for sex?

Cole; Peter F. Neronha, U.S. Attorney for the District of Rhode Island; and Kathleen Martin-Weis, Acting Director of the U.S. Food and Drug Administrations Office of Criminal Investigations (FDA/OCI). The forfeiture, one of the largest ever in the United States, represents the gross revenue received by Google as a result of Canadian pharmacies advertising through Googles AdWords program, plus gross revenue made by Canadian pharmacies from their sales to U.S. consumers. The shipment of prescription drugs from pharmacies outside the United States to customers in the United States typically violates the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act and in the case of controlled prescription drugs , the Controlled Substances Act. Google was aware as early as 2003, that generally, it was illegal for pharmacies to ship controlled and non-controlled prescription drugs into the United States from Canada. The importation of prescription drugs to consumers in the United States is almost always unlawful because the FDA cannot ensure the safety and effectiveness of foreign prescription drugs that are not FDA-approved because the drugs may not meet FDAs labeling requirements; may not have been manufactured, stored and distributed under proper conditions; and may not have been dispensed in accordance with a valid prescription. While Canada has its own regulatory rules for prescription drugs, Canadian pharmacies that ship prescription drugs to U.S. residents are not subject to Canadian regulatory authority, and many sell drugs obtained from countries other than Canada which lack adequate pharmacy regulations. The Department of Justice will continue to hold accountable companies who in their bid for profits violate federal law and put at risk the health and safety of American consumers, said Deputy Attorney General Cole. This settlement ensures that Google will reform its improper advertising practices with regard to these pharmacies while paying one of the largest financial forfeiture penalties in history. This investigation is about the patently unsafe, unlawful, importation of prescription drugs by Canadian on-line pharmacies, with Googles knowledge and assistance, into the United States, directly to U.S. consumers, said U.S. Attorney Neronha. It is about taking a significant step forward in limiting the ability of rogue on-line pharmacies from reaching U.S. consumers, by compelling Google to change its behavior. It is about holding Google responsible for its conduct by imposing a $500 million forfeiture, the kind of forfeiture that will not only get Googles attention, but the attention of all those who contribute to Americas pill problem. Todays agreement demonstrates the commitment of the Food and Drug Administration to protect the US consumer and hold all contributing parties accountable for conduct that results in vast profits at the expense of the public health, said FDA/OCI Acting Director Martin-Weis. The result of this investigation has been a fundamental transformation of Internet pharmacy advertising practices, significantly limiting promotion to US consumers by rogue online pharmacies.
