Paid Consultations - Opportunities and Timesavers

Tags: Online learning, Pharmacy management, Professional pharmacy services


Please note that this course is included in the Operational PD Bundle.

Ontario pharmacists have an “alphabet soup” of publicly-funded and privately-insured, paid clinical consultation opportunities… MCs, POPs, OHIP+, GSC-PHC and MBC-MCDS.  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.
