Achieving Greater Impact From Investments in Medicine in Canada

Many Canadians are not taking the medications they need, resulting in a range of challenges, including poor health outcomes and an inefficient use of health services. Three dimensions of how prescription medicines intersect with the patient-care continuum are important for supporting the appropriate use of medicines: prescribing practices; supporting patient adherence; and deprescribing. However, these dimensions are often not optimally supported across health systems in Canada, which can contribute to the inappropriate use (including underuse, overuse and misuse) of prescription medicines.
