phrm Survey for AllerGen NCE -- AllerGen NCE is a national research network funded by Industry Canada through the Networks of Centres of Excellence (NCE) program.  Since 2004, AllerGen has united Canada's leading experts in allergic disease and asthma.  AllerGen is conducting a needs assessment survey to determine the need for an interprofessional Allergy Educator Training Course in Canada.  The survey was developed by a multi-disciplinary steering committee and survey results will be reviewed by this group to inform further investment in the development of such a course.  This online survey will take approximately five (5) minutes to complete and a response is requested by July 25, 2014.  The opinions and comments of Saskatchewan pharmacists will be highly valuable to the evaluation of this initiative.  Please go to the survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2_Allergy_education_survey
