New Article – Lessons from Alberta

Pharmacists explored the connections between evidence, advocacy and individual action at the BBDC 5th Annual Diabetes Pharmacists Networking Event at the Diabetes Canada/CSEM Professional Conference in Edmonton, Alberta on November 1, 2017. The keynote speaker was Dr. Ross Tsuyuki, Professor of Medicine and Director of the EPICORE Centre research facility at the University of Alberta, followed by a discussion moderated by Dr. Lori MacCallum, Assistant Professor, Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy and Program Director of Knowledge Translation and Optimizing Care Models at the BBDC, University of Toronto. As the only province in Canada where pharmacists can exercise independent prescribing authority, Alberta can be regarded as a model for the rest of Canada, noted Tsuyuki, one that can offer worthwhile learnings.

Recently we received a letter from Nkwenti Davidson Achu, a pharmacist in Cameroon and president of the Cameroon Diabetes Association. We first met Nkwenti when he attended our Diabetes Pharmacists Networking Event at the World Diabetes Congress in Vancouver. We would like to share this letter with all of our members and honor Nkwenti as our featured pharmacist.
