CSHP strongly supports the principle of appointing pharmacists to lead hospital pharmacy services in Canadian healthcare institutions.
Head of Hospital Pharmacy Services: Statement on the Role of the Pharmacist
Hospital pharmacy, like many other disciplines, is facing an impending crisis in the availability of management leadership manpower. In this environment, it is not surprising that alternative management structures for pharmacy departments have been considered and adopted in some organizations.
Despite this impending crisis, consensus is that the profession of pharmacy needs management leaders and strong managers in every area and at every level of pharmacy practice. Pharmacists are the best equipped personnel to lead pharmacies and direct the medication-use systems in hospitals.
