This briefing focuses on the policy and practice implications for getting the most out of community pharmacy and elaborates on guiding principles from a research, program, and policy perspective.

Document Highlights

The scope of community pharmacy services has expanded in recent years, with each province and territory taking a different approach to practices and programs.

By 2035, Canada-wide implementation of three community pharmacy services—smoking cessation, advanced medication review and management for cardiovascular disease, and pneumococcal vaccination—could yield significant health care system efficiencies and increased labour force productivity.

Opportunities to optimize community pharmacy include enhancing evidence and understanding of impact; addressing legislation and regulation challenges; creating supportive operating environments; supporting the evaluation of pharmacy practice quality standards; and implementing appropriate funding models.
