Community Practice Environment Initiative

Updated: December 9, 2020

Shared Accountability in the Delivery of Patient-Centred Healthcare in Community Pharmacy

The Community Practice Environment Initiative is aimed at understanding confirmed and potential barriers to professional autonomy and patient safety in community pharmacy through thoughtful, respectful and meaningful collaboration and engagement with pharmacy stakeholders.

The first phase of this initiative focused on developing a set of guiding principles of shared accountability amongst pharmacy stakeholders. These principles will guide the development of specific solutions and strategies for the sector to further strengthen the quality and safety of pharmacy care, and help position the profession for ongoing success as pharmacy plays an increasingly important role in the health and wellbeing of Ontarians.
