Pharmaceutical Nursing Consultation

CASA’s Pharmaceutical Nursing Consultation (PNC) program is a provincial program in partnership with Calgary. This support service strives to build capacity through evidence-based education, resources, and consultation on medication and relevant children’s mental health topics.


Our program is staffed by two nurses (a registered nurse and a registered psychiatric nurse) who are members of CASA’s multidisciplinary team and led by the Manager of Rural Services, Consultation and Education.

The Program

  • Responsive information support to meet the needs and time constraints of busy caseworkers through teleconference, video conference, in-person case conferencing, and email consultation services as needed.

  • Educational in-services are available on psychotropic medications, in-person and video conference, to CS district offices and foster support agencies upon request.

Who It’s For

The program is available to CS staff and caregivers throughout Edmonton, the surrounding communities, and Northern Alberta. All children and youth in the care of, or receiving services from Children’s Services are eligible.
