Hospital Pharmacy in Canada Survey Report available fall 2022

June 20, 2022



Get ready for the publication of the 2020/21 Hospital Pharmacy in Canada Survey Report this fall. Survey Board members have reviewed, analyzed and interpreted the many data elements, trend tables and comments from hospital pharmacies across the country. Over the summer, the work turns to final editing, translation and production to prepare the results for release. Ongoing issues with COVID and new technical challenges bumped the expected release from June by a few months. 

New this year, the Survey collected information on the impact of the COVID pandemic on hospital pharmacy services. As well, for the first time the inclusion of facilities with less than 50 acute care beds will provide a first look at small hospitals in Canada and offer baseline data for this new group of respondents. As in previous editions, the 2020/21 HPC Survey Report will provide comparison of the aggregate results based on province; hospital size; teaching versus non-teaching hospitals, and pediatric patients. 

We are grateful for the support of our corporate sponsors, Pfizer Canada, Pharmascience/Pendopharm, and Baxter Canada. Their funding covers such technical production as survey programming, French translation, publication, and copyediting. As always, the editorial direction, content, survey design, analysis and interpretation are the sole responsibility of the respected pharmacy leaders on our affiliated HPC Survey Board.
