This new strategic plan profiles Neighbourhood Pharmacies’ leadership as the unique, distinct voice of the business of pharmacy in Canada. The three-year plan is unveiled at a pivotal juncture in the global health landscape, amid the ongoing turbulence caused by the pandemic, at a time when the value, ingenuity, and commitment of pharmacy have never been so evident. Pharmacy’s role is expanding at the same time as healthcare is being recognized as a critical policy area demanding government innovation.
"Investing in Access" focuses on four core pillars: Proactive Advocacy, Outcomes-Focused Though Leadership, Viable Sustainability, as well as Strategic Collaboration and Partnerships. Consistent with its successful pan-Canadian advocacy approach, Neighbourhood Pharmacies collaborates with its extensive stakeholder network- within and across jurisdictions- and alongside industry and health system partners to inform policy decisions that impact Canadians.
Neighbourhood Pharmacies is building on the momentum generated by the sector and the growing trust of government and Canadians to expand pharmacy's integral role in public health and primary care.
