Engage With Us
Have other ideas on how you’d like to engage with us?
CPhA is the national voice for pharmacy, committed to bringing the world of pharmacy together. Here are some of the ways that you can get involved in our initiatives, or simply stay informed of the work we’re doing on your behalf and up to date on what’s happening at CPhA and within the profession of pharmacy.
Sharing your front-line experiences helps us ensure that the work we’re doing is meaningful and relevant to you and your practice. Here are a few ways you can get involved in our work:
Pharmacy Virtual Advisory Team (PVAT): We are inviting front-line pharmacists across Canada to join our Pharmacy Virtual Advisory Team! Share your front-line pharmacy experiences to help us bring timely and ongoing feedback on the realities of pharmacy practice to governments and other stakeholders, and to support our strategic initiatives. Initially focused on providing information regarding current drug shortage situations, this group will also be asked to provide feedback on a range of other relevant topics as they arise. Learn more about the Pharmacy Virtual Advisory Team or sign up to join.
Meetings with governments and stakeholders: CPhA regularly meets with federal members of parliament (MPs) to talk to them about the important role pharmacists play in providing care to their communities. MPs are very interested in hearing directly from their constituents and including passionate pharmacists in these meetings is a key element of our government relations initiatives. No advocacy experience necessary—we will fully prepare you if a meeting with your MP is arranged! Sign up here.
Speaking opportunities: We regularly host discussion panels and educational webinars and we are always seeking front-line pharmacists and pharmacy leaders to provide their perspectives. We are also always looking for new and engaging speakers for our national conference. If you have passion and expertise in a specific area and want to share that with your colleagues on a national scale, we want to hear from you. Let us know what topics you’d like to share.
