Fri, Dec 21, 2018

PAS in partnership with CPDPP has updated the Partnership to Assist with Cessation of Tobacco (PACT) Level 1 &2.CPDPP is hosting this course for PAS. 

The training is CPDPP accredited for 4.25 CEUs and is free of charge to all Saskatchewan pharmacists. To access the free training, please email michelle.james@skpharmacists for the sponsorship code.

The PACT program and Tobacco Cessation minor ailment prescribing are complimentary programs but are independent of each other. This means the patient can choose to use the services of either service or both at any time in their process. All pharmacists can provide and submit claims for Bronze Level Services. Only PACT trained pharmacists can provide and submit claims for Bronze Plus, Silver and Gold Level Services, and Follow-ups. If you have further questions on PACT billing or PACT information for pharmacists click here or visit the PACT website.

Please note the training program for the prescribing of tobacco cessation differs from the PACT program and is available in CPDPPs minor ailment training, here.

If you have further questions, please contact the PAS office
