Within the next five years, the World Health Organization’s global safety challenge goal is to reduce medication-related harm by 50 per cent. Since the majority of prescriptions originate in out-patient settings, creating and evaluating safe and effective medication use are essential for the safety and sustainability of our health system. Our scientists are developing innovative care models to improve medication safety in ambulatory settings and optimize care at the individual, organizational and health system levels. We have also identified the gaps in use of community pharmacists to support patients during transitions of care and collaborated on the creation of five medication class-focused deprescribing clinical practice guidelines.
