Paid Consultations - Opportunities and Timesavers

Tags: Online learning, Pharmacy management, Professional pharmacy services



Ontario pharmacists have an “alphabet soup” of publicly funded and privately-insured, paid clinical consultation opportunities including MedsChecks, Pharmaceutical Opinions, OHIP+, GreenShield Canada's Cardiovascular Health Coaching and Smoking Cessation programs and Medavie Blue Cross’ Managing Chronic Disease Service. Take this course to personalize your approach to integrating these activities.  All cited programs will be reviewed; however, a key goal of this online course is for participants to leave with Pharmaceutical Opinion and MedsCheck tools to save time with documentation.
