Today, community pharmacies in Canada are so much more than dispensaries. They are healthcare hubs offering both traditional dispensing services and Medication Management services which help improve patient outcomes and relieve downstream pressures on the healthcare system.
help realize the optimization of community pharmacy, CACDS, the
Canadian Pharmacists Association (CPhA) and provincial pharmacy associations jointly developed the Canadian
Pharmacy Services Framework (Framework).
Framework’s purpose is to help transition the pharmacy business model from a
transactional approach based on dispensing to a patient-focused
approach centred on pharmacy services.
