The Pharmasave Pharmacy Innovation in Patient Care Award

Sponsored by Pharmasave Drugs Ltd. these two awards, valued at $1250 each, are awarded to students who show leadership in the development and implementation of a "non-dispensing" patient care program/service offered by a community pharmacy. Examples of such programs include but are not restricted to:

  • Information and screening clinics
  • Health Management Programs (eg. consultations)
  • Community Presentations and Seminars
  • Medication Management (eg. Compliance packaging, visual/hearing impaired, disabled, etc)

Students entering the 3rd or 4th year of the pharmacy program are eligible to apply.

Application Process:
The student(s) applying for the award must submit a document to the Awards Committee that outlines the following:

  • Description of the program including an explanation of why this program is innovative.
  • Description of the implementation phase.
  • Any forms/materials that the student developed and used for the program.
  • A brief letter from a pharmacist preceptor verifying the program.

NOTE: The program does not have to be 100% successful to be eligible for consideration as there are many challenges that students do not have control over. Programs that involve implementation of pre-existing program will not be considered for this award.

A selection committee will be composed of members of the School's Awards Committee.

Deadline: Friday August 16th, 2013
