Outcomes Matter: Promoting a Data and Quality Culture in Pharmacy

During the Regional Meeting sessions, registrants will get the latest updates about the College’s transformative approach to using data to inform regulatory programs and sector performance in order to achieve better patient outcomes.

Following an update from College representatives on several key initiatives and regulatory programs, participants will engage in a facilitated session designed to identify best approaches to using data and evidence in promoting quality in their everyday practice. Participants will also discuss solutions to potential barriers that challenge professionals from adopting a quality culture in their pharmacies.

A particular focus of the discussion will be the Assurance and Improvement in Medication Safety (AIMS) Program rolling out to all community pharmacies in Ontario as well as the introduction of Quality Indicators for Pharmacy. To support the discussion, participants will review the selected outcome indicators as well as preliminary aggregate medication incident data collected through the AIMS Program.

All meetings will be hosted from approximately 6pm to 8:30pm and refreshments will be provided.
