2018 Annual Report. Measuring Performance; Improving Outcomes


The College recently published its 2018 Annual Report. The report, with the theme of Measuring Performance; Improving Outcomes, features highlights and trends from the calendar year, including:

  • New initiatives, such as the launch of our medication safety program, that will ultimately help to reduce the risk of preventable patient harm due to medication errors in community pharmacies;
  • Emerging opportunities that we are embracing – and leading – related to the development of a common set of quality outcome indicators for pharmacy to promote better patient care and enable greater system accountability and performance;
  • How we are working with health system partners to inform and influence quality and safe pharmacy care through a systems-based approach to a number of our regulatory activities. One example is the development of new regional approaches to promoting standards compliance in partnership with the Local Health Integration Networks; and
  • Our new Strategic Plan and strategic priorities for 2019-2021.
