Mylan Introduces Online Resource Centre for Continuing Education of Canadian Pharmacists
June 2, 2010 (Toronto) – Mylan Pharmaceuticals ULC has launched the Mylan Learning Centre, an online portal designed to provide pharmacists with continuing education lessons and support their learning by offering added context, important information and much-valued training. The Mylan Learning Centre is unique to the Canadian healthcare industry and addresses areas that are directly related to the day-to-day realities of pharmacists in a format that is user-friendly and dynamic.
Accessible at Mylan.ca/LearningCentre, the Learning Centre features monthly continuing education topics supported by a growing bank of information, hand-picked resources and fact sheets with background information. Pharmacists can complete their lessons in one place, benefiting from the comprehensive information the site has to offer and a direct link to the continuing education test.
“This is a critical time to support pharmacists and to demonstrate a sincere desire to help them advance their practice and improve front-line services for Canadian customers,” said Dick Guest, President and CEO of Mylan Canada. “The Mylan Learning Centre will have a direct impact on its visitors and is open to everyone.”
The Centre will also feature an online video series, called the Mylan Centre for Collaborative Care. The new series follows the life of Canadian pharmacist Jeff Cardew as he moves his pharmacy practice from the big city to a small community. The video series features six webisodes and is dedicated to improving dialogue between pharmacists, physicians and patients.
Pharmacists will also be able to access a number of other resources to help them assist patients, such as related links, quick health guides and a drug and condition library that contains fact sheets on commonly prescribed drugs and conditions.
Mylan.ca was recently awarded Outstanding Website at the Interactive Media Awards Competition (IMA), in the category of Healthcare. The IMA recognize excellence in website design and development and honor individuals and organizations for their achievement.
