    Hello
    Thank for this article highlighting the important and complex work of the MRS / DAN team. In Nova Scotia there are three Medication Resources Specialists – two full time staff in Cancer Care and one half time MRS in Rheumatology. All are social workers. There is one full time Drug Access Navigator in Cancer Care who is a pharmacy technician. All of the Cancer Patient Navigators throughout Nova Scotia work on drug access too and it’s true that all of us “work like hell”!
