Pharmacy Awareness Month 2015
As you read this, we are successfully completing the second week of Pharmacy Awareness Month (PAM).
Did you used to let Pharmacy Awareness Week (PAW) slide because it was only a week!? Be honest! Well, now you have no excuse. You have a full month to proudly promote all the great things you do for your patients throughout the year.
PANS Chair Sandeep Sodhi gives his thoughts on the Marketplace story.
As I think every pharmacist in Canada knows, CBC finally aired their Marketplace story on pharmacy errors last Friday evening. I did not want to get involved in making too many comments or opinions until the piece aired, hoping that maybe the report would be balanced and informative, recognizing that errors do happen from time but that the number of errors is very small and that pharmacists have, and always, put the patient first.
