TORONTO, May 1, 2014 /CNW/ - CACDS applauds the Province of Ontario's recognition of the contribution
made by neighbourhood pharmacies and pharmacists, including in-pharmacy
immunizations, to provide better care to Ontarians at better cost.
This season, Ontario's neighbourhood pharmacies delivered four times as
many flu shots as last year, significantly increasing the number of
Ontarians protected against the human and financial costs of this
Denise Carpenter, President and Chief Executive Officer of CACDS said:
"Canada's neighbourhood pharmacy industry strongly supports the
continued reform of the country's healthcare delivery system, where and
when focusing on better patient care, better patient outcomes and
better use of taxpayers' scarce dollars."
"We look forward to continuing to work with the Province of Ontario to
bring healthcare closer to where Ontarians live, work and play.
Delivering more patient care services in pharmacies is both good public
policy and good for taxpayers."
