    with other network members The network is open to all Canadian pharmacists and pharmacy students and there is no cost to join The majority of members are staff community pharmacists notes Lori MacCallum Program Director at BBDC Some are Certified Diabetes Educators but most are not and that s not a requirement for joining Learnings revolve around patient cases where the answers are not always black and white and aren t easily found in the clinical guidelines says MacCallum For example one of the learning modules addresses individualizing drug therapy for patients with diabetes and chronic kidney disease Each module includes a 20 to 30 minute educational video broken down into easy to navigate chapters presented by one of BBDC s diabetes experts Participants can also get an immediate sense of pharmacists current practice behaviours by viewing aggregate results to questions posed in the module Members can post comments in the discussion area and access peer reviewed articles and patient education tools in the toolbox area Evaluation results have been extremely positive with almost everyone saying they ve learned something new that they ve gained confidence or received validation that they re doing the right thing says MacCallum Feedback is prospective as well We ask for members feedback on future cases and what questions they d like to see answered Other healthcare providers are also stepping forward For example a physician approached BBDC about developing a module on how pharmacists can provide preconception counseling for women with diabetes It will be released in the fall BBDC is also using feedback and analytics to help determine what new practical tools can be developed outside of the network We can use the interactive learning to help guide practice change That is the whole point states MacCallum To that end the BBDC also

    the continued evolution of pharmacy practice Why do you think pharmacy research is so important With the expansion of pharmacy services third party payers and government want to know they re getting value for what they re providing and that means research Unfortunately there aren t many places researchers can go to in Canada to get funding What is CFP doing in this regard In my mind CFP has taken a very bold step in agreeing to provide 100 000 for pharmacy practice research this year Historically we have committed 50 000 and last year we gave more than 70 000 thanks to a lot of support within the pharmacy community This sends a strong message that we are serious about supporting this type of research that is so vital to pharmacy s future Are you getting a significant number of proposals coming in We ve seen a tremendous increase in both the number and quality of proposals coming in Last year we received 26 and while we don t go into our assessment with a set number of projects we ll fund every year we felt three were important enough to support because they would all make a significant contribution in documenting the value of pharmacy services What are your goals for 2016 We ve come a long way in increasing our visibility with our many awards grants and the launch of the pharmacy textbook Now we want to encourage a greater number of individual pharmacists to contribute to CFP at a grass roots level I believe the work of the Foundation is important to all practising pharmacists I also think the CFP board can play a leadership role in encouraging this type of funding through their own contacts You ve spent significant part of your career working in
