Administering Drugs and Vaccines by Injection

Pharmacists can expand their scope of practice in the areas of prescribing, drug or vaccine administration, and ordering of screening and diagnostic testing by successfully completing the requisite Council-approved education, training, and application process.

Requirements

To administer drugs and vaccines by injection, pharmacists must:

  • be a licensed, practicing member with the College of Pharmacists of Manitoba;
  • successfully complete a CCCEP Stage II competency mapped injection training program or possess active injection authority from another Canadian jurisdiction that has the same CCCEP Stage II competency mapped injection training accreditation requirement;
  • successfully complete the Manitoba Module: Administration of Injections;
  • possess current certification in CPR Level C (or HCP) and Emergency or Standard First Aid from an in-person training program that is recognized as an approved first aid training agency/program/provider by the Workplace Safety and Health (WSH) Branch of the Government of Manitoba; and
  • apply and receive certification of injection authorization from the College of Pharmacists of Manitoba within one year of completing the required training or within one year of graduating from a Faculty of Pharmacy in Canada.

Maintaining Authorization to Administer Drugs and Vaccines by Injection

Pharmacists must submit a self-declaration of proficiency of knowledge and skills as part of annual renewal.

Retraining in a full CCCEP Stage II competency mapped injection course is required if a pharmacist has not administered an injection in the preceding three years or within one year of completing the initial training requirements.

Pharmacists must notify the College if they have let their CPR/First Aid certification lapse, or, if at any point, have not maintained the injection requirements for continued certification of authorization.
