AIMS Data:

The College has developed an interactive tool that allows pharmacy teams and other stakeholders to view aggregate, anonymous medication safety data available through the AIMS program.

Reports and Bulletins
Training Resources
  • AIMS Program e-Training
    Community pharmacy staff must complete the six e-learning modules which introduce the AIMS Program and provide information on how to use the AIMS Pharmapod platform as well as the expectations for pharmacy professionals. The modules take less than one hour to complete. Effective implementation of the AIMS Program into a pharmacy requires all pharmacy staff to have a full understanding of the program and how to use the tools available on the platform. After completing each module, registrants can print a certificate of completion to confirm they have reviewed the content. This certificate of completion may be kept for your own records and does not need to be submitted to the College.
  • Pharmacy Safety Self-Assessment User Guide
    Overview and guide for completion of the Pharmacy Safety Self-Assessment (PSSA), which community pharmacies were required to complete for the first time by December 31, 2021.

Background and Briefing Notes
About the AIMS logo

A new visual identity the College’s medication safety program, Assurance and Improvement in Medication Safety (AIMS) Program, includes subtle references to the four aims of the program: Recording, documenting, analyzing, and sharing. The first and last letters, with a stylized treatment in colour, are a tribute to Andrew Sheldrick whose tragic passing has brought important public and professional attention to the need for medication error reporting in pharmacies throughout the country.
