The Canadian Foundation for Pharmacy - Innovation for the Future
In today’s difficult economic times, it is not just pharmacy that has to think about adaptation, but we certainly need to give it more thought before deciding that the status quo or a slow uptake in the new opportunities for pharmacy services is the best approach. This is the kind of thinking that inspired us with this year’s Foundation supplement “The Changing Face of Pharmacy” that will appear as an insert in the November issues of Quebec Pharmacie and Pharmacy Practice. Pharmacy chains, pharmacy associations and pharmaceutical industry partners all told us what they are doing to help pharmacist adapt to change. And again, we spoke to a few pharmacists who are excitedly offering their patients a whole new level of care.
"It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change"
At the Foundation, we too need to adapt to change if we want to survive. This is a key driver of our Board of Directors as they oversee the activities of the Foundation. In part, this motivated their decision to assist the Blueprint for Pharmacy, with their fundraising efforts. We are pleased to announce that a cheque for $3,000 will be sent in support of their projects. The Blueprint for Pharmacy is a collaborative initiative for managing the changes required to align pharmacy practice with the health care needs of Canadians.
- Charles Darwin
Webster’s defines innovation as the introduction of something new - a new idea, method, or device. Innovation is at the heart of the Foundation as we continue to look for innovative practice research to support through our Innovation Fund. Thanks to the continued support of our many supporters, the Foundation recently approved two new projects for $50,000 each.
