What is the Education Working Group?
The Education Working Group of the TI is comprised of physicians, pharmacists, clinical pharmacologists, and epidemiologists with extensive experience in patient care, research, and teaching.
What do we do?
One of the main goals of the Therapeutics Initiative is to provide physicians, pharmacists, nurses, and other allied health professionals with up to date, evidence based, practical information in the area of rational drug therapy.
Experts who have extensive experience in-patient care, research, and in knowledge translation guide the exchange of knowledge to healthcare professionals. Members of the group have extensive experience, both locally, nationally, and internationally, communicating with health professionals and consumers about the rational use of medication. They have presented over 500 seminars on drug therapy over the last 20 years. In addition, they have published numerous articles in the medical literature on rational drug therapy . Examples of the knowledge exchange products they produce include “closer to home” community small group drug therapy educational sessions. Another testament to their knowledge exchange expertise is the “Therapeutics Letter.” This is a bi-monthly letter targeting important therapeutic issues with brief, simple, practical messages.
If you are interested in having members of the Education Working Group provide an education session in your area, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
