9000 Points of Care: Improving Access to Affordable Healthcare

1942
Many of Canada’s pharmacists, community pharmacies, drug manufacturers, and pharmaceutical distributors, are acutely aware of how challenges facing the delivery of care affect the quality of life of the people our health system is designed to serve: Canadians. Building on the growing need for practical and implementable solutions, we as leaders in Canada’s broader pharmacy community have chosen to collaborate – as business leaders, healthcare professionals, and as Canadians – to share our knowledge and experience. Out of this collaboration has come Broader Pharmacy’s Plan for Improving Access to Affordable Healthcare. It outlines five key initiatives that seek to improve patient outcomes, contain costs, and ensure the sustainability of our healthcare system for the sake of the patients of tomorrow.

Sustainable Solutions Report: A Focus on Pharmacist Medication Reviews

1939
In this document, we examine how pharmacists, as medication experts, are well-positioned to help Canadians better manage their medications. A medication review can improve health outcomes by educating patients on the safe and effective use of prescription medications, over-the-counter medications and natural health products. Medication reviews can also facilitate better communication among health care providers, including physicians and pharmacists, resulting in improved patient care.

Roadmap to a Rational Pharmacare Policy in Canada

1937
A Roadmap to a Rational Pharmacare Policy calls for governments, insurers, policy makers, and pharmaceutical companies to recognize that the present hybrid system we are using to fund prescription drug purchases isn’t working. As Dr. Marc-André Gagnon’s paper makes clear, our current system is unfair, inequitable, and wastes money in many different ways, from excessive administrative fees to government tax subsidies, to unnecessary and expensive treatments. Reform in the current context isn’t radical; rather, it’s the rational, responsible choice we need to make.
