March is here, and with it comes Pharmacy Awareness Month 2017. The theme for this year is “Your Hospital Pharmacy Team: Your Trusted Medication Experts” which puts an emphasis on the role that the entire pharmacy team plays in medication management. Key messages to use in PAM activities include the roles that the pharmacy team play in making a difference as medication experts, as integral members of the healthcare team, by providing patient centered care, and by providing effective communication and education to patients. Flyers promoting these messages can be found on at cshp.ca for your use in PAM activities.
For the first time this year CSHP SK Branch is offering the Hospital Pharmacy Advancement Award. The purpose of this award is to highlight an individual or group who has gone above and beyond in support of PAM. Consider nominating someone to recognize their efforts!
