Canadian Pharmacists Journal

Call for submissions: Pharmacists on the front lines

In a time of great challenge and uncertainty, pharmacists and pharmacy technicians have stepped up at the front line to provide care to stressed and frightened members of their communities. CPJ and CPhA would like to highlight your efforts, your innovations in care and your challenges. In 200-300 words, tell us:

  1. What was the situation/problem you encountered
  2. Background (give some brief details so the problem and actions make sense to the reader)
  3. Your Assessment and Actions
  4. Reaction from your patient(s)
  5. How did it make you feel as a pharmacist?
  6. And any other challenges you have encountered and faced?

We’ll tell your stories in a future issue of CPJ, in CPhA social media and other venues. If you have a photo that illustrates your story, please send it along (should be at least 400 KB). Send to cpj@pharmacists.ca.

We're also looking for your patients' perspectives! Please encourage your patients, family and friends to email us their stories of how pharmacists and pharmacy teams have gone above and beyond for them during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Pharmacist professional identity: Dr. Zubin Austin

Did you miss Dr. Zubin Austin’s thought-provoking session on professional and personal identity in pharmacy practice at PxP2019? This CPJ-sponsored lecture was one of the hits of the recent conference.
The University of Toronto has released a video of Dr. Austin sharing his insights into the psychology of pharmacists and practice change. You can also read Dr. Austin’s research on this topic in CPJ.


Special supplement to the CPJ: 2019 Pharmacy Practice Research Abstracts

A special conference issue of the CPJ, sponsored by Canada Health Infoway, was created for PxP2019:


Happy birthday, CPJ!
