WHAT IS A ACPA?
Alberta Cosmetic Pharmacist Association (ACPA) is a non-profit organization that offers support, education, and training for Alberta Pharmacists in the Cosmetic and aesthetic injectables field.
Recently, The cosmetic injection industry evolved to include different health professionals such as Physicians, Nurses, and Pharmacists. Unfortunately, due to the lack of innovation and poor development of the Alberta College of Pharmacists (ACP), Pharmacists have yet to explore the full potential of this industry.
Mission: To work with regulatory bodies and associations such as ACP, RXA, CPSA, and CARNA to better recognize Pharmacists’ rule in the medical cosmetic field. To provide systemic training and education accredited by the CCCEP and connect pharmacists with the different suppliers and providers.
Vision: To have a better representation and leadership for Alberta pharmacists, in general, and in the cosmetic field in specific.
Value: We believe that Alberta Pharmacists are capable of providing a significant add-one to the medical cosmetic community as they equipped with unique knowledge and training in the field of Pharmaceuticals, Pharmaceutics, anatomy, and injections administration.
