Young Leader in Pharmacy Kristen Ramsdale: "I have a passion for teaching and shaping the next generation of pharmacy technicians."
The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed Canada's dependence on foreign countries in the pharmaceutical industry. With 73% of prescriptions filled in Canada being for generic products, it is now more important than ever to improve the reliability of the supply chain.
When it comes to our leadership, there is a point that we really struggle to move past. And we will never move past that point unless we go through the discomfort of growth.
As health-care professionals, pharmacists have a unique and important role that is multifaceted and ever changing. Every year our scope of practice grows, therapeutic approaches in clinical care evolve, and we face new business pressures.
