After the pandemic: 
What lies ahead for community pharmacy

Virtual Event
Thursday May 12, 2022
8:45 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. Pacific Time

May 11, 2022 UPDATE: Accredited for 2.25 CEUs
(CCCEP number: 1092-2022-3438-C-P, Expiry: May 13, 2022)

Please note that only the live event is accredited.

It's been more than two years since the COVID-19 pandemic changed the world around us. For the past two years, community pharmacists have been on the front lines offering advice and information to patients, COVID-19 and flu vaccines, and rapid antigen tests while continuing the services they offered before COVID.

The 2022 annual conference is aimed at helping pharmacists understand what lies ahead in 2022 and beyond and what we need to start thinking about in the post-pandemic pharmacy world. 

This year’s event is free to all 4,000 members, who include frontline pharmacists, pharmacy owners and key decision makers in pharmacy across Canada. 

Update: On the afternoon of May 11, 2022 The Hon. Shelia Malcolmson, Minister of Mental Health and Addictions, will be unable to present to this year's conference. She sends her regrets. We have adjusted the amount of CEUs to 2.25 rather than the original 3.0.
