Development of this program was supported by the Drug Evaluation Alliance of Nova Scotia (DEANS), the Pharmacy Association of Nova Scotia (PANS) and the New Brunswick Pharmacy Association (NBPA).

The first component, PHAR-IIAT0001 Immunization Competency Online Program, is comprised of 16 modules, and will take approximately eight to ten hours to complete. Pharmacists must achieve at least 70% on the post-study online test prior to being enrolled in the practical workshop.

The second component, PHAR-IIAT0002 Administration of Injections Workshop, is training and certification on the hands on administration of injections. There is a virtual component and an in-person assessment where candidates must successfully administer an intramuscular and a subcutaneous injection to receive a certificate of completion for the workshop. 

On the day of certification, participants will be provided with necessary supplies (i.e. needles, syringes, practice injection pads, etc.) and time to practice required skills. 

Trained certifiers from Dal CPE’s IIATP will provide guidance and answer questions regarding any aspect of the injection/immunization process.  There will be no formal review of the IIATP online modules or IIATP workshop content.  It is anticipated that all participants will have reviewed pertinent materials from IIATP, NACI, the Public Health Agency of Canada, etc., as determined by their own needs and/or by their provincial regulatory body, prior to attending the re-certification session.
