This 60-minute webinar examines the value of expanding selected community pharmacy services and presents key opportunities for optimizing community pharmacy by leveraging the Conference Board of Canada’s 2017 report The Value of Expanded Pharmacy Services in Canada and 2017 briefing Getting the Most out of Community Pharmacy: Recommendations for Action.
The objectives of this webinar are to:
- provide an overview of the evolution and current state of pharmacy services in Canada
- showcase the health and economic impact of three services currently delivered within a community pharmacy setting that have the potential to be expanded: smoking cessation, advanced medication review and management for cardiovascular disease, and pneumococcal vaccination
- present key opportunities to optimize community pharmacy
