Pharmacist Awareness Month 2015
March 2015 marks Pharmacist Awareness Month (PAM) in Canada, a month-long period to celebrate and educate Canadians on the contribution that pharmacists make in the delivery of quality health care. The tagline for 2015, Pharmacists: Trusted Care When and Where You Need It, conveys the message that pharmacists not only are trusted leaders in the provision of frontline care, but as the most accessible health care providers in Canada, they are able to provide quality care conveniently and quickly.
A great deal of activity took place across Canada throughout the month of March for Pharmacist Awareness Month (PAM) 2015. From a national survey of Canadians' attitudes toward pharmacists to creative and engaging events, info workshops, advertisements and social media campaigns, together pharmacists, provincial associations and pharmacy students helped spread the PAM 2015 message.
