Paxlovid Prescribing Update
Up until now, Paxlovid was distributed in Manitoba using a centralized approach, requiring referrals rather than prescriptions. Starting Friday, May 20, access to Paxlovid will be expanded to allow more prescribers to write prescriptions for patients who meet the eligibility criteria for Paxlovid. In addition, dozens of community pharmacies have agreed to screen for drug interactions and dispense Paxlovid to patients.

This webinar will review the new process for expanded access for Paxlovid and patient eligibility. The webinar will provide an overview of Paxlovid and information needed to prescribe it safely, including indications, mechanism of action, dosing, supportive clinical data, contraindications, use in pregnancy and breastfeeding, adverse effects and drug interactions. Practical tips for prescribing Paxlovid will also be provided. A Q&A will follow.

Our Panel includes:

Dr. Grant Goldberg, a family physician who also serves as the community COVID Medical Lead in Winnipeg and Site Medical Lead for ACCESS Fort Garry.
Alfred Gin, PharmD, who works as a clinical pharmacist at HSC specializing in infectious diseases.
Coralie Buhler, a nurse practitioner who is the clinical operations lead for primary health care in Winnipeg and part of the COVID-19 incident command team.
