Currently, there are no existing tools for frontline providers to help guide patient education and counselling for Parkinson’s Disease. Pharmacist Amy Tran of Parkinson Wellness Projects in Victoria, B.C., and her team aim to identify areas of drug therapy where individuals with Parkinson’s encounter challenges and require guidance, and then create a toolkit for pharmacists to help them better educate and counsel these patients. In turn, community pharmacists will have resources to better bridge the gaps in care that individuals with PD are currently experiencing.

Canada’s Charity of Choice to Support Pharmacy

As a registered charity, the Canadian Foundation for Pharmacy (CFP) is uniquely positioned to fund practical research and innovative practice models at the grassroots level, as well as recognize the leaders of today and tomorrow. Our vision is to be a catalyst for change in the profession of pharmacy by seeking out, nurturing and inspiring innovation. Your donations are a way to give back to a profession that has much to look forward to. Thank you for your support.
