  • Abstract:

    Background In contrast to provincial health care systems, the Canadian Forces (CF) relies heavily upon alternative professionals to provide heath care in challenging environments. Medical Technicians (Med Techs) provide non-prescription (OTC) medications to CF members to manage both minor self-limiting illnesses and urgent or emergent conditions.
