Pharmacy Thought Leadership Summit
On June 23-24, 2016 CPhA hosted a Pharmacy Thought Leadership Summit in conjunction with the Canadian Pharmacists Conference in Calgary, Alberta. The event brought together over 100 invited pharmacy leaders and professionals from across Canada with the goal of reaching agreement on priorities and actions that CPhA can take forward with partner organizations to achieve an optimal future for pharmacy practice—a future that reflects the aspirations of pharmacy professionals and the health care needs of Canadians.
The quality of discussions and unique contributions from Summit participants were truly excellent and inspiring. A Summit Report was developed, which provides a detailed summary of the event proceedings along with key discussion notes on the priorities, ten-year goals and actions needed to achieve the goals of the profession. We encourage all pharmacy stakeholders to embrace the priorities and take action on those that fall within their mandates.
CPhA looks forward to working with our members and the broader pharmacy community to advance the ideas and actions identified at the Summit. We are committed to ongoing engagement with frontline practitioners to help guide our efforts and address critical challenges and opportunities related to pharmacy practice.
