Relevant. Evidence-based. Informative. Unbiased. Practical. You hope to see these descriptions on any educational offering to which you dedicate your time as a busy a pharmacist.

We can help you answer these questions, and more!
The TI is comprised of pharmacists, physicians, and university researchers. Our motto is “Better Prescribing, Better Health”. We aim to promote drug therapy that is in the best interest of patients, based on a thorough and accurate understanding of scientific evidence.
The TI provides a range of educational offerings for practising pharmacists, including a bi-monthly newsletter (the Therapeutics Letter), monthly webinars, and our annual Best Evidence course (to be offered virtually this year on October 15, 2022). We also host recorded material on our website and YouTube channel. All content is available via our website: https://www.ti.ubc.ca/
You can sign up to stay up to date on all of our educational materials. We host monthly webinars, which are eligible for continuing education credits.
Here’s the best thing - all our offerings are available free of charge, thanks to the support of British Columbians, through our operating research grant from the Ministry of Health! We look forward to being your go-to source for evidence-based, unbiased, and practical education, and to helping you deliver the best care for your patients.
