It’s Pharmacy Awareness Month (March 1-31, 2020)
We are trying something different this year to create public awareness of pharmacy practice in Newfoundland and Labrador (NL).
Internationally, the social media hashtag “#whatwedoinpharmacy” has gained some popularity as a pharmacy public awareness campaign for pharmacy professionals to share their everyday activities with the goal of better explaining what it is they do.
During the month of March, NLPB will be using its Twitter and Facebook accounts (@NLPharmacyBoard) to share messages about the role of the regulatory body in NL pharmacy.
We encourage ALL pharmacy professionals, and stakeholders, to get involved and engage by using the hashtag #whatwedoinpharmacyNL to provide insight on your daily activities and share how you contribute to patient safety and quality health care.
Let’s take this opportunity to educate the public on what pharmacy looks like in NL, and how pharmacy professionals contribute to safety and quality care in the province.
