Provincial Academic Detailing (PAD) Service

The Provincial Academic Detailing (PAD) service is a form of continuing medical education in which a health professional, usually a pharmacist, meets with physicians one-on-one to discuss selected drug therapy topics.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, PAD is providing ‘virtual detailing’ sessions (via individual web conference or teleconference) only. Please contact your PAD pharmacist directly to scheduled a time or email PAD@gov.bc.ca.
