  • 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)
