      It’s officially #PAM2023! We are honoured to celebrate our hardworking hospital #pharmacy team members today and every day.

      Working in hospital #pharmacy means playing a vital role in the larger patient care team: making sure patients receive the best medications for their individual care plan. #PAM2023 

      #ThankYouPharmacy for keeping patients safe. By performing essential tasks like medication reconciliation or following compounding best practices, you help improve the lives of patients daily. 

       DYK that hospital pharmacists have been pioneering the now trendy pharmacogenomics? They study how a patient’s genes impact their response to specific medications so that they’re able to customize individual care plans.

       Whether you’re part of a team that works in a hospital or community pharmacy setting, long-term care facilities or the pharmaceutical industry, we just want to say #ThankYouPharmacy for your medication expertise!

       Even after a patient is discharged, hospital #pharmacists advise which medications should be administered, held, or discontinued. #ThankYouPharmacy for your role in the continuity of care.

      Happy #PAM2023 to the many hospital #pharmacy staff that balance crucial clinical research in addition to their daily clinical tasks.

       Pharmacists are an expert source of medication information. Whether consulting patients, physicians, or caregivers, #pharmacists are intent on the delivery of safe drug therapies. #PAM2023

       DYK in vaccine clinics, #pharmacy staff help prepare and draw up vaccines? #ThankYouPharmacy!

       During #PAM2023, we want to thank all Hospital #pharmacy technicians who provide essential services to their patients by preparing various sterile compounds that require meticulous techniques and calculations.

       #ThankYouPharmacy for your creativity amid drug shortages. By searching for alternatives to one of Canadian healthcare's most pressing issues, you continue to put #patientcare above all!

      Thank you Pharmacy!

      The work that Hospital pharmacy professionals do is pivotal to patient care, and that starts by supplying invaluable medication knowledge. “Pharmacy professionals across Canada contribute to the care of millions of Canadians on an annual basis,” said Dr. Sean Spina, President of the Canadian Society of Hospital Pharmacists.  

      For hospital pharmacists, developing care plans tailored to meet the unique needs of each patient is all part of their daily to-do list. Their work includes reconciling medication on admissions and discharges, preventing drug therapy problems, and educating patients about how to understand and adhere to their medications. These pharmacy professionals put in the work to ensure safe, effective medication use.  

      Daily, those who work in pharmacy perform tasks such as compounding and dispensing medications or preparing IVs. Typically, a pharmacy technician collects Best Possible Medication Histories to ensure a patient’s care team has the most thorough and up-to-date information on their medications. Doing so helps with avoiding negative drug interactions and helps the continuation of the patient’s medication while they’re in hospital. 

      These everyday tasks, however, have been made harder to complete due to external factors including supply chain issues due to COVID-19– namely drug shortages. “Pharmacy professionals work in Pharmacy Informatics and manage hundreds of drug shortages on a regular basis,” added Spina. As a result of this major issue, pharmacists must rely on their own ability to find creative ways to produce and deliver the medication necessary for their patients.  

      “Canadian pharmacy professionals work in harmony to ensure the right drug makes it to the right patient at the right time,” emphasized Spina, “When you see your pharmacy professional this month, take a moment to let them know that you appreciate the important role they play in healthcare delivery.”
