How much do you charge for consulting ? Do you charge the same rate for patients vs a company?
This is a great question that I'm surprised you havent received an answer yet! The rates I have seen depend on the type of consulting. For example, if you are consulting with patients and providing clinical recommendations or with business to assist with product development or their patient consultation process.
Your experience will also play a role in how much you can charge. The gold standard is a prevailing wage similar to what pharmacists are making in retail (~$50 an hour average) but of course with greater experience you can charge more (i've seen up to $250 an hour for example). Also, considering when charging patients is typically a cash charge; most clinicians offer a sliding scale depending on the time required. There can also be a variation in fees if this is a first time vs follow up appointment for example.
We are looking to standardize a medical model that allows for pharmacists to charge for their clinical services including recommendations for cannabis medicine. If this is a topic that interests you, I'd welcome you to our next Education and Professional Development meeting - recurring at the first Tuesday of the month.
