The College of Pharmacists of BC is proposing to the Ministry of Health to expand the scope of practice for pharmacists to be able to prescribe in collaboration with physicians and nurse practitioners in hospital and outpatient clinic settings.

CSHP BC Branch is working to engage the public, healthcare workers and government officials to obtain support for pharmacist prescribing.

We would like to thank everyone who submitted their artistic entries to the Pharmacy Awareness Month Button Design Contest – your time and creativity are greatly appreciated!

The Advocacy Committee acknowledges that the original March 31st deadline for the contest was relatively short and limited the number of interested individuals from participating. Therefore, we have decided to extend the PAM Button Design Contest until September 15th, 2019.

To highlight our vision of advancing pharmacy practice, the next PAM Button should, where possible, aim to highlight the direct patient care or collaborative aspects of pharmacy practice (as opposed to a medication or product-based focus). Please note that button designs are not limited to images or graphics – they can also provide a simple, clear statement that supports our themes.

The creator of the winning design will receive a FREE REGISTRATION to a CSHP-BC Branch continuing education event of his or her choice; must be a CSHP member to be eligible. Designs are to be submitted to advocacy@cshp-bc.com.
