Canada’s pharmacy teams have taken on a lot throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to care for and support their patients and communities. The prolonged pressure of the pandemic and the ongoing strain on our health system continues to highlight the significant physical and mental stresses health workers bear as they care for their patients.

Taking care of yourself
