March is Pharmacists Awareness Month (PAM). This year, Pharmacists Manitoba is pleased to once again partner with the Canadian Pharmacists Association in their promotion of the ReThink Pharmacists campaign. The goal of the Manitoba Rethink Pharmacists campaign is to inform Manitobans about the services that Manitoba pharmacists have to offer. This year, we will focus on smoking cessation in advance of the pharmacist-led smoking cessation social impact bond program that was announced in January of this year and will be implemented later this spring.
Pharmacists Manitoba will be sharing posts on social media promoting the value of the role pharmacists play in helping patients quit smoking. There are a variety of promotional items available for download on CPhA’s website including:
We would also like to know what our members are doing to celebrate Pharmacist Awareness Month and we ask that you share your PAM photos and stories with us! You can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org letting us know what you did including photos, and we will share them in the next issue of Communication.
