About Tache Pharmacy
Tache Pharmacy has been providing effective pharmaceutical care, consultative services, and pharmacy medication distributive services to people living in community-based and institutional care settings throughout the City of Winnipeg since 1974.
We have collaborated with physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and social workers and proven that our experience qualifies us to be part of any “caring team”. Included among our client group are personal care homes, disease specific care homes, palliative care units, group and residential facilities, hospital wards, assisted and non-assisted living, and emergency shelters. As expert providers, we have a reputation for being sensitive to the needs of people living in these settings.
We have over 34 years of experience performing the following functions in complex care settings.
Tache Pharmacy has had a special and longstanding relationship with St. Boniface General Hospital which is located right across the street. Through this relationship, we have worked virtually all of the departments in the hospital, including palliative care, oncology, chronic diseases, disease-specific products and therapies; and pain control therapies.
In addition, Tache Pharmacy has consulted with the Health Sciences Centre, most notably with the Pain Clinic, where our pharmacists have been an integral part of introducing topical neuropathic medications to Manitoba. Prior to this introduction, Tache Pharmacy was the sole provider of infusion pumps to the clients of the Pain Clinic. Tache pharmacists have also delivered training and education sessions to health care professionals in the Victoria Hospital and the Concordia Hospital.
