Pharmacy Practice Research
The Canadian Pharmacists Association is a strong advocate for pharmacy practice research in Canada. Both academic researchers and practising pharmacists are involved in pharmacy practice research. Increasingly, links are being formed with policy-makers as well, to ensure that the knowledge created by researchers is incorporated and reflected in new policies affecting pharmacy practice and health care delivery.
Pharmacy Practice Research is a component of health services research that focuses on the assessment and evaluation of pharmacy practice. It includes studies that evaluate pharmacists' roles in a variety of capacities. These studies include systems research, patient-centred research and community based research that encompass a variety of determinants of health and their influence on patient outcomes and population health. CPhA's quarterly publication, the Translator, supports the knowledge translation between pharmacy practice research and health policy.
