Course Description

The Pediatric Injections Training Program (PITP) is comprised of two parts:

  • Online Competency Program
  • Administration of Pediatric Injections Workshop

This program was developed to prepare pharmacists to administer immunizations by injection to young children. The legislation surrounding this expanded scope of practice is in various stages in each province. You are required to check with your regulatory body for further instruction once you have completed this program.

It is recommended that you are experienced and comfortable administering injections before participating in this program.

If you are new to injections, please register for the Immunization and Injection Training Program (PHAR-IIAT0001) and the Administration of Injections Workshop (PHAR-IIAT0002).

Online Competency Program overview

The first component, the Online Competency Program, is comprised of 1 module, and will take approximately two hours to complete. Pharmacists must achieve at least 70% on the post-study online test prior to being enrolled in the practical workshop.

Once you have completed the online portion, you can participate in the workshop (Phar-IIAT0007). You are welcome to register for both portions at the same time, however the modules must be complete prior to your live workshop.
