BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES
The College based Continuing Pharmacy Education unit, was established July 31, 1995. The goal of this unit is to develop, deliver, and evaluate quality, reasonably priced, continuing professional education to meet the needs of the pharmacists of Saskatchewan in terms of maintaining competence to practice and fulfilling the SCP licensure requirements.
December 17th, 2014: Coming in January! -- There will be an Immunization and Injection Training Program beginning in January. The Registration Form is now available, please go to the "Live CPD Events" page, that link is located in the right-hand menu at the top of this page. With regard to this Immunization and Injection Training Program: Since its introduction in the Legislature, Bill 151 to amend The Pharmacy Act (1996), is proceeding through the legislative process. Amongst other things, the bill authorizes pharmacists to administer drugs by injection and other routes. CPDP would like to be ready when this legislation comes into force allowing pharmacists to administer drugs by injection, in particular to prepare pharmacists to administer flu vaccines to patients for the 2015 flu season. CPDP’s training program meets the NAPRA competencies that were adapted from the Public Health Agency of Canada competencies http://napra.ca/pages/Practice_Resources/injectioncompetencies.aspx
This training will be a two-part program which blends on-line learning with a live program. The live program will include theory and practical aspects of administering drugs via injections. In order to attend Part 2, you must complete Part 1 online in advance; and you must have your current First Aid/CPR with AED, deadlines will be in place prior to attending the live component.
December 15th, 2014: Announcement -- The ECP course has been taken down off Blackboard temporarily to be upgraded. The course will be reposted some time in January, we will post an announcement when the course is back online, please watch this page for updates. Those who have registered for the course and are currently enrolled, we will be contacting these pharmacists individually to inform them when the course is online once more.
CPDP and Anti-Spam Legislation: On July 1, 2014, Canada's Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL) came into effect. Our office will be making every effort to comply with this legislation. Pharmacists, who are currently on our email distribution lists, have already received 2 mass emails with this information and an "unsubscribe" option as part of their content. Our office has been asking pharmacists on these lists, to give us their written consent in order to allow us to continue sending our emails to them. If you are not on our email lists but would like to receive our electronic announcements, invitations, and notices about live CE events, please email us at email@example.com with the subject line "subscribe reminders" and type in text giving us your written consent to do so. Every email from July 1, 2014 going forward will always include an unsubscribe link, pharmacists may unsubscribe from our lists at any time.
