Welcome to the Pharmacy Implementation Resources page!
We have many resources available to help you get started with implementing patient-centered labels.
Educate your staff on the importance of patient-centered labels by reviewing this toolkit. This has been created to help them better understand the project and the “why” behind the importance of patient-centered labels. It contains a video and other resources, as well as a short survey. At the end is a Certificate of Completion you can sign for those who reviewed this toolkit.
