43rd Annual CSHP Western Branches Banff Seminar 2017

 

Quick Links

The 2017 Banff Seminar Planning Committee is excited to welcome you to the 43rd Annual CSHP Western Branches Banff Seminar, happening in beautiful Banff, Alberta on March 17th-19th, 2017!  

This year, we are thrilled to announce our theme: “Storytelling: Connecting Through Our Experiences”. By telling stories, we share our own unique experience and point of view with others. Stories can allow us to learn more meaningfully and to connect on a deeper level with each other and with our patients. Each year, our delegates come to Banff to learn and network.  What better way to learn than through a narrative? What better way to network than by sharing a story with a colleague? 

Once again, we are planning an event that boasts an excellent educational program, as well as providing time to relax and socialize with peers. We are very excited about our expert lineup of Storytellers that will inspire, challenge and enlighten all of us. Our Friday afternoon will feature our first ever Town Hall, engaging all delegates in discussing the future of clinical pharmacy training. Once the dust settles, get out your green clothes and join us in celebrating St. Patrick’s Day! Our social events for Friday and Saturday evenings are always sure to generate some good stories – details are still being finalized, so be sure to check the website for updates! Our preliminary education schedule is now available online – we hope you will agree that we have a diverse line-up of stories to be told.

The Banff Seminar Planning Committee is a group of sixteen hard-working volunteers who work throughout the year to organize this conference. I would like to take the opportunity to thank all of them for the time and effort they have committed towards planning the speakers, activities, and other logistics of this conference. 

Our committee would also like to give a huge thank you to our industry sponsors who provide us with funding to offset some of the conference expenses. Their sponsorship ensures that our registration fees remain affordable for pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, students, and others to attend the conference. This year, we are also pleased to announce that we are seeking CCCEP accreditation for both pharmacists and pharmacy technicians. 

Finally, and most importantly, we would like to thank all of you!  It is only with your ongoing support and attendance that this conference is possible. This year’s Banff Seminar will be packed with stories and sessions that will challenge your assumptions and expand your knowledge. I hope that you will join us in one of the most scenic places in the world for a weekend that will leave you rejuvenated and educated — perhaps with your own story to share!

Looking forward to sharing stories with all of you,

Ginny Cummings
Chair, 2017 CSHP Western Branches Banff Seminar Planning Committee

Topic
A Short History of Cardiovascular Medicine

Much of the focus of academic medicine is on the future development of medical technologies based on recent scientific discoveries.  However, just like following a map to a desired future destination, it is just as important to know where you have been in addition to knowing where you are going.

In this symposium Dr. Smith will take us on a journey spanning over 300 years following the evolution of cardiac care.  With a focus on coronary artery disease he will review the major ground breaking discoveries of the past which have resulted in most of the current procedures and treatments we use today.

Topic Drug Diversions ARE Occurring on YOUR Watch!

Drug diversion in the healthcare setting is well described in the literature, but how proactive are you in preventing unexpected loss of narcotics?  Are you prepared when you discover a diversion attempt?  Pharmacy staff have a critical role to play in preventing drug diversion.  Diversion of narcotics significantly impacts both patient, public and staff safety. Join this discussion to understand the role of the Pharmacist and Pharmacy Technician in preventing, detecting and responding to drug diversion in the hospital setting.
