Pharmacists Manitoba is all about you, our members, and providing resources to help you adapt and continuing to advocate on your behalf.
Pharmacists Manitoba has increased the profile of pharmacists during the pandemic both in the eyes of government, the public and the media.
Pharmacists Manitoba represents pharmacists in meetings with the Government of Manitoba through the Vaccine Implementation Task Force. Pharmacists Manitoba successfully negotiated a $20 fee per dose for COVID-19 vaccines provided by pharmacists.
The public has embraced pharmacists in the provision of COVID-19 vaccines, recognizing them as the most accessible and approachable healthcare professionals.
Media requests have increased tenfold in the past few months with multiple interviews being conducted sometimes daily, raising the profile of pharmacists with the public.
For the past year, Pharmacists Manitoba has continued to build our COVID-19 Resource webpage and added the COVID-19 Vaccines webpage to ensure our members have the most up to date information on all developments.
Pharmacists Manitoba continually shares educational and informational webinars including CPhA’s COVID Conversations, CPhA and NACI’s Preparing for Flu Season- Best Practices for Community Pharmacy, and Manitoba Health, Pharmacists Manitoba and CPhM’s Community Pharmacy COVID-19 Vaccination Panel.
While COVID-19 takes up much of our time, your Board knows there is more to focus on, and work continues behind the scenes on both the Smoking Cessation Social Impact Bond and pharmacist assessment and prescribing for UTI’s.
The Pharmacists Manitoba Conference now offers virtual learning and two events providing members with double the number of CEU’s. Virtual on demand sessions enable our members to access the conference no matter where in the province they live.
The Pharmacists Manitoba Board of Directors is working tirelessly for you, our membership. Membership is your voice, and we need to hear from you.
