Pharmacy Practice Research
Pharmacy Practice Research focuses on the assessment and evaluation of pharmacy practice. It includes studies that evaluate pharmacists' roles in a variety of capacities, including systems research, patient-centred research and community-based research that encompasses a variety of determinants of health and their influence on patient outcomes and population health. Pharmacy Practice Research can encompass large-scale, multi-site projects and/or small-scale quality improvement initiatives undertaken to improve understanding of local or practice-specific issues.
