Supporting Innovation in Pharmacy for a Healthier Canada

Embracing Change

How are pharmacists responding to an expanded scope of practice? Which services do patients appreciate the most? What are the challenges of billing for new services?

The Canadian Foundation for Pharmacy explores these and other frontline issues related to putting an expanded scope of practice into action. Pharmacists share best practices, lessons learned and how they're making a difference in patients' lives.
