Consultation for feedback on the Rural, Remote and Underserved Populations: Access to Prescribed Medications Joint Practice Statement
Rural, remote, and underserviced populations are at risk for potentially harmful delays in care because of barriers to timely access to services. Taking this into account, Manitoba’s Nursing Colleges, the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Manitoba, and the College of Pharmacists of Manitoba (CPhM) collaborated to create a joint practice statement entitled Rural, Remote and Underserved Populations: Access to Prescribed Medications (the joint practice statement). The joint practice statement was approved in April 2018 and is currently in effect.
CPhM is launching a consultation on the joint practice statement to gather feedback on its use in pharmacy practice. Pharmacy professionals who provide care to rural, remote and underserviced populations are encouraged to participate in the consultation.
The consultation is open until December 30, 2022, and can be accessed via the following link https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/6KST5MD
