Welcome to the Pear Healthcare Solutions blended program, which has been designed to help you develop the skills and knowledge to be able to administer injectable medications to patients in your pharmacy.

This national program is CCCEP-accredited and accepted by all provincial pharmacy regulatory bodies as part of the required training for eligibility to administer injections.

This program consists of two parts: 
  • Online content, 11 modules in total, with required readings: 6.5 CEUs 
    • Complete this at your convenience prior to attending the live session. 
  • Live workshop, full day: 7 CEUs (offered in various cities across Canada) 
    • After you have purchased the program, you can select a workshop. If no workshops are available, click “Request Workshop” to request a workshop in your location. 
    • Wear short sleeves as you will be practising administering and receiving intradermal, subcutaneous, and intramuscular injections of sterile water or normal saline. 
    • Bring a copy of the slides and the case study from the online portion of the program to the live workshop.
Once you have finished the online and live portions of the program, you will receive a certificate of completion. In order to be granted the authority to administer injections, you will be required to complete first aid and CPR training in addition to this program and register with your provincial regulatory body. 

 ***NOTE: ALL PROVINCE-SPECIFIC INJECTABLE MEDICATION AND VACCINE ADMINISTRATION PROGRAMS HAVE BEEN CONSOLIDATED INTO ONE NATIONAL PROGRAM AS OF OCT. 7, 2015***
