The first year of the UBC Pharmacists in Primary Care Network (PCN) Program was marked with major accomplishments. The Program has recently published their Year One Highlights: 2020-2021, a report that lists current milestones, accomplishments, and potential areas of progress. In their inaugural year, the Program has engaged with 273 community pharmacies and addressed 1,089 patients. They have also identified 1.839 Drug Therapy Problems (DTPs). Working towards achieving this impressive milestone were 23 primary care clinical pharmacists (PCCPs) recruited under the Program. In Year 2, the Program plans to recruit an additional 30 PCCPs in order to expedite collaborative efforts in improving primary care settings for patients in British Columbia.
