Learning Environment

The mandate of UBC Continuing Pharmacy Professional Development is to advance the knowledge, skills, attitudes and abilities of pharmacists and other healthcare professionals throughout British Columbia through leadership and innovation in continuing professional development, service, and scholarly activity, that support patient-centered, outcomes-focused care. We strive to meet this broad mandate by providing programming in a variety of live and distributed learning formats. We endeavor to reduce barriers to learning associated with time and geography through the application of innovative and engaging technologies including webconferencing, videoconferencing, webcasting and streaming media. The goal of all of our initiatives is to provide supportive learning environments that foster active engagement, encourage self-motivation and discovery, and offer flexible solutions to fit individual, real-time learning needs.
