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.

Deadline: Sept 15, 2019

The CSHP-BC Branch is holding a CONTEST to redesign our trend-setting “I Love Pharmacy” Button that we have proudly been sporting for the past few years.  You can be our next designer!

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.

2019 Annual Fraser Valley Chapter Continuing Education Event

Date: June 12th, 2019 5:00 – 8:00 pm
Location: UBC Lecture Theatre in Surrey Memorial Hospital – Critical Care Tower.

Join us for this year’s Annual Fraser Valley Chapter Continuing Education Event at the UBC Lecture Theatre in Surrey Memorial Hospital – Critical Care Tower. This event has been accredited by CCCEP for 1.5 CEUs.

Featured presentations and speakers include:

  • From Opioid Epidemic to Paradigm Shift
    Dr. Karen Ng, BSc. Pharm., ACPR, Pharm. D.
    Canada is in the midst of an opioid epidemic, with confusion and fear surrounding how we use opioids because of past misguided messages. As an evidence-driven profession, pharmacists can leverage our knowledge and skills, and collaborate to protect patients from harmful outcomes of opioids and misuse practices. Together, we can encourage approaches to optimizing opioid prescribing, and lead in our commitment to opioid stewardship.
  • New Trials in Critical Care: 2018/2019
    Mr. Jarred Kelly, BSc. Pharm., ACPR, LMPS Year 2 Pharmacy Resident – Critical Care
    This presentation will focus on the appraisal and applicability of several recent new trials in critical care including early norepinephrine in septic shock (the CENSER trial), pantoprazole vs. placebo for GI stress ulcer prophylaxis, and haloperidol or ziprasidone vs. placebo for treatment of delirium (MIND-USA trial).

EARLY BIRD registration ends June 2nd, 2019 11:30 pm! Note – There is a Live Webinar option available see eventbrite link for registration.
