New 2022: Given the climate emergency and the rise in extreme weather events and their consequent health impacts, Excellence in Pharmacy Practice submissions related to climate change may be given special consideration. Canada has signed-on to the World Health Organization COP26 Health Programme with two commitments: building climate resilient health systems and developing low carbon sustainable health systems. There is expected to be a greater movement in the coming years as extreme weather events become more common, and there will be an expectation for health systems to meet these commitments.
