Needs

Purchase of self-learning modules

Teaching / Pharmacotherapy

Goal : $1,500

In Québec, it is difficult to find high-quality teaching tools that can reach as many professionals as the American College of Clinical Pharmacy’s online training courses are able to reach.

Your donations will allow the HMR Foundation to acquire self-learning modules on pharmacotherapy as well as training courses on pharmacotherapy in critical care.

Current situation

All pharmacists working within the CIUSSS de l’Est de l’Île de Montréal (CEMTL) are engaged to varying degrees in the delivery of pharmaceutical care and, as associate clinicians, in the university-level training of pharmacy residents, undergraduate students, clerks, and medical residents. Because medical science is evolving so quickly, pharmacists require access to teaching resources that will enable them to keep their knowledge and skills up to date in the fields of critical care and general medicine.

Furthermore, a new critical care pharmacist position was recently created to serve emergency department patients. The training modules will enable us to offer a new pharmacy internship that meets the accreditation standards of the Canadian Society of Hospital Pharmacists (CSHP).

Description of the project

The online training modules the HMR Foundation wishes to purchase will enable us to provide our pharmacists with up-to-date resources for teaching undergraduate students and pharmacy residents, and will ensure members of the department are provided with continuing education.

Benefits

As a result of this development, HMR will be able to:

  • offer high-level medical training that meets the accreditation standards of the Canadian Society of Hospital Pharmacists (CSHP);
  • provide a high-quality education to undergraduate students and pharmacy residents;
  • ensure department members receive continuing education.

Patients will benefit from high-quality pharmaceutical services provided by pharmacists, residents, and pharmacy students.

Support better care. Give.
