Pharmacy Appreciation Month – March 2023


Pharmacy Appreciation Month – March 2023

Pharmacy appreciation month is celebrated throughout the month of March in all provinces across Canada, both in retail and hospital settings. It provides us an opportunity to reflect on our accomplishments, our setbacks, our moments of burnout, and a vision for excellence for the year ahead. This year PTSA rolled out questions every week in March in order to provide a common platform for idea sharing with fellow technicians in the province and a chance to win a $25 gift card. There were lots of responses! Following are the 5 questions and their winners. Questions were posted on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
