March 1st is the kick off of Pharmacy Awareness Month (PAM), and if you don’t already have activities planned for your workplace, check out CSHP’s Guide to Planning Pharmacy Awareness Month. Every activity counts, from putting up posters to doing news interviews, so let’s see your PAM spirit!
CSHP SK Branch will be offering the Hospital Pharmacy Advancement Award again this year, which is given to an individual or group with the most PAM involvement. Make sure to nominate your peers who are deserving of this award by sending the nomination form to firstname.lastname@example.org.
CSHP is celebrating #PAM2018 with a detailed social media campaign! We encourage you to engage in this campaign by following, liking, sharing and commenting on #CSHP posts!

As part of this campaign, CSHP would like to recognize and feature excellent pharmacist mentors by featuring pharmacist profiles on social media throughout March. Please consider featuring your mentor by completing the attached Mentor Profile Submission Form. Official will continue to accept profiles throughout March!
The key messages for PAM include highlighting; the pharmacy team as medications experts, part of the health care team, patient-centered care providers, and effective communicators. As always, make sure to use #PAM2018 on social media to show your support.
Finally, as you think about PAM and pharmacists making a difference in patients lives, it’s never too early to think about nominating an exceptional colleague for a branch award!
