Multi-partner smoking cessation project for vulnerable patient group

Pharmacists Manitoba partnered with Manitoba Health, Healthy Living and Seniors, the College of Pharmacists of Manitoba, Neighbourhood Pharmacy Association of Canada and researchers at the College of Pharmacy, University of Manitoba, to conduct a pilot project focused on helping low-income patient quit smoking. “We successfully reached out and worked with a very hard-to-reach population. Pharmacists proved that they are a key access point to a majority of the population, much more so than other healthcare providers,” says Dr. Brenna Shearer, Chief Executive Officer of Pharmacists Manitoba.

In addition to $25,000 in funding from the Canadian Foundation for Pharmacy’s Innovation Fund, this project was made possible through a matching grant from Pfizer Canada.
