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 serious disease.
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."
