The Pharmacist's Role in Major Depressive Disorder: Optimizing Care

Depression, or MDD, is a serious mental illness that can recur over the course of a patients lifetime. Once depression is recognized, medication can make a difference for 80% of people who are affected, allowing them to get back to their regular activities. This webinar will highlight the role of pharmacists who are in the unique position to optimize patient care for MDD. Join Jamie Kellar for this interactive webinar to explore screening tools for MDD, learn how to discuss medications and monitoring options for MDD to meet the goals of treatment and encourage medication adherence.

Pharmacist-Led Pharmacogenomics Services in Primary Care

Personalizing medications based on one's genetic profile, a field known as pharmacogenomics, is becoming part of daily clinical practice. Pharmacists are ideally positioned to leading this integration into practice by partnering with patients and their prescribers to optimize medication therapy outcomes.

Explore with Drs. Lisa McCarthy and Beth Sproule how the Pharmacists as Personalized Medicine Experts project — the PRIME project for short — has equipped Ontario pharmacists with the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to become personalized medicine experts in their communities. Learn how PRIME pharmacists integrated pharmacogenomics into their practices and its impact on their relationships with patients and their prescribers.
