OPEN Summit 2022 Call for Abstracts

Researchers involved in medication management research across Canada are invited to submit abstracts for live virtual oral presentations at the 2022 Ontario Pharmacy Evidence Network (OPEN) Summit, co-hosted with the Center for Practice Excellence (CPE) at the University of Toronto's Leslie Dan Faulty of Pharmacy. Presentations can address new research findings or in-progress research focused on medication management and/or collaborative approaches to healthcare with an emphasis on the role of the pharmacist. COVID-19 research will be considered and there will also be an emphasis given to projects focusing on research not explicitly related to COVID-19 research, to support the advancement of other critical topic areas of research in pharmacy and the health care space.


All are encouraged to submit abstracts for this event, including trainees, new researchers, and practitioners.


This event will bring together researchers, educators, policy makers, healthcare professionals, knowledge users and trainees to discuss current pharmacy research and to engage in discussions about improving medication management and the health and social care system.
