Patient Interview Competition

Sponsored locally by uniPHARM Wholesale Drugs

The CAPSI Patient Interview Competition is a great way to practice your interaction skills in a clinical scenario, and offers student members an opportunity to truly test their professionalism during an interview with a patient in addition to their clinical knowledge of conditions. This is an absolutely necessary skill as a pharmacist in any part of Canada, and nothing will prepare you better for real-life scenarios with actual patients than the Patient Interview Competition.

The competition utilizes a standardized patient to provide the closest simulation to a patient, and the evaluation is carried out by a judge well-versed in interacting with patients. Complete a patient assessment, identify drug-related problems, counsel and document patient interactions and compete to win!

Individual students compete locally by conducting a fifteen minute patient interview, with the goal of identifying and resolving drug-related problems. The winner advances to the National Patient Interview Competition at PDW.

The winner of the patient interview competition shall receive: $150 PDW registration and $100 travel subsidy to be used to travel to the upcoming Professional Development Week to compete in the National Patient Interview Competition.
