The College of Pharmacists of Manitoba (College) has worked in collaboration with seven other regulators from the Manitoba Alliance of Health Regulatory Colleges (MAHRC) to develop an educational Professional Development (PD) module on social media and professionalism. The module is titled “Pause Before You Post: Social Media Awareness” and it is now available on the member homepage for all pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to complete.
As recommended by the Quality Assurance Committee, Council passed a motion earlier this year requiring all Manitoba pharmacists and technicians to complete a yearly mandatory PD module. “Pause Before You Post: Social Media Awareness” serves as the first mandatory module.
All pharmacists are required to complete this module before October 31st, 2021, and all pharmacy technicians are required to complete it before May 31st, 2021 in order to be eligible for the 2022 licence/listing renewal.
The module has been accredited by the College for up to 1.50 CEU and must be claimed in the PD year the module was completed.
To access the module, please follow these steps:
- Click the Registrant Login button at the top of the page
- On the member homepage, scroll down to “My Professional Development”.
- Click on “Pause Before You Post: Social Media Awareness” to launch and view the module.
- When completed, enter your name and license or certificate number on the Statement of Participation, print/save it, and keep it in your PD portfolio.
