  • Changes and challenges in health care economics and demographics bring a need for change in pharmacy professional practice. Research in the School of Pharmacy is focused on this situation.
  • The provincial and national environment contains a rapidly aging population with increasing cost pressures on the health care system. A large landmass, settlement patterns, and harsh weather conditions pose challenges to health care delivery in rural and remote areas. This has implications for both patients and health professionals, and it is sometimes a challenge to meet the needs of all citizens.
  • The changing, increasingly challenging model of pharmacy practice requires discovery of new practice models to ensure that pharmacy services are economically sustainable.
