Excellence Express: Issue No 1
What is the Excellence Program?
CSHP's Excellence in Hospital Pharmacy Program is a multi-year program designed to foster excellence and innovation in patient care. Excellence will support hospital pharmacy teams in their provision of exceptional patient care, which in turn should result in improved patient health outcomes.
Patients are our focus!
Three Priority Themes:
The pharmacy team views patients as valuable, effective partners in shared decision-making. The pharmacy team listens to, understands, and respects the patient's story about experiences and expectations that will affect the use of medications.
The pharmacist provides proactive patient-centred care to develop a pharmacy care plan that reflects the patient's goals. The pharmacy department implements risk-reduction strategies to improve the safety of the medication-use system.
Communication & Collaboration
The pharmacist communicates the plan of care to the professionals who will assume responsibility for care of the patient at care transitions. The pharmacist develops and assesses the pharmacy care plan in collaboration with other members of the healthcare team.
