The tool supports pharmacists with prescribing for various minor ailments and self-care conditions and is now used by thousands of students and professionals in every province across Canada.

The guidelines gained widespread use not only in Saskatchewan but across Canada. In September 2020, medSask moved to a subscription-based model for non-Saskatchewan practitioners in order to support the work of medSask to maintain and evolve the guidelines. Since moving to a subscription and licensing-based model, more than 19,000 individual pharmacists and students are now accessing the guidelines through businesses, universities, or independently.
