  • (Updated) Protecting the Front Line: COVID-19 Day-to-Day Questions: CPhA has created an FAQs resource to help pharmacists manage day-to-day questions about COVID-19 in their pharmacies. This information is meant to support policy, practice and clinical guidelines being developed across the country, and will answer key questions pharmacists may have when supporting their patients during the pandemic. The content will be updated regularly.
  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): Suggested Best Practices for Pharmacies During the COVID-19 Pandemic: CPhA has recently updated its suggested best practices on the use of PPE by pharmacy staff. Changes reflect new guidance from health organizations in Canada and around the world on the use of non-medical masks to reduce virus spread, sessional use of PPE in certain circumstances and tools to help practitioners better assess individual scenarios where PPE may be required.
  • Staffing and Business Considerations if a Pharmacy Team Member Becomes Ill: CPhA and the Neighbourhood Pharmacy Association of Canada have developed a list of key considerations for pharmacy managers/owners to help them prepare for next steps if a pharmacy staff member is exposed to or infected with COVID-19. This document will help pharmacies prepare for staff reductions or store closures and offers guidance on staff reductions, self-assessment and connecting with local public health units.
  • The COVID Conversations: CPhA's open access webinar series designed to support pharmacists during the COVID-19 pandemic.
    • Webinar Recordings: Recent webinars include The Role of Pharmacy in Public and Population Health, Opioid Stewardship Under the New CDSA Exemptions, COVID-19 and the Global Experience, Supporting Pharmacists’ Mental Health and Wellness, A Day In the Life of Community Pharmacists During COVID-19, and more.
  • Supporting Pharmacists’ Mental Health and Wellness During COVID-19: As pharmacists take on greater responsibilities during the COVID-19 pandemic they are also bearing additional physical and mental stresses as they continue to provide care to their patients. Based on our recent COVID Conversations webinar, this new practice tool encourages pharmacists to be aware of their own mental health and well being during these challenging times, and provides practical tips and links to additional resources on where to get support.
