Pharmacy Technician's Letter Canada

Through our content peer review teams and specialty consultants (unpaid Canadian practicing pharmacists, technicians, prescribers, and nurses) our pharmacist editorial team publishes 10-12 articles monthly all of which are 30 lines or less!  We do all of the research so you don’t have to and to top it all off…we provide you with clinical recommendations as well!  The articles are concise, current, high-use information that helps anticipate patient needs and informs your clinical actions.  That’s just one part of the solution.

Canadian Pharmacy Technician Letter provides up to date, practice-changing, evidence based information in an easy to read, and understand, format along with specific recommendations.

The editorial process leverages a vast community of drug therapy experts, both in practice and in academia, to anticipate what readers need to know and consolidate complex drug-related topics into digestible bites with clear and practical recommendation.  No other resource does this.  The editors sift through evidence to determine the best evidence-based recommendations. But even more importantly, when it’s a topic that lacks sufficient evidence, Canadian Pharmacy Technician Letter compiles the available evidence and works with experts in the area to firm up practical recommendations.

The end results include improved efficiency, reduced potential for medication errors, and improved quality of care for patients. Pharmacist’s and Technicians don’t have time to sift through the literature or even read the lengthy pieces so many other drug information services provide.  Each month the service hits the big questions pharmacist are facing in practice daily in just 30 lines or less.  No other resource does this.  Additional benefits that have continued to grow in the online portion of the service include supporting details, the most practical treatment guidelines, med-guide finder, comparison charts, patient education resources and continuing education credits and tools.  These are all incorporated to support the core advisory services in Canadian Pharmacy Technician Letter.
