Access to Pharmacy Services & Mapping

Community pharmacists are among the most accessible healthcare professionals, and this accessibility can be particularly valuable to priority populations such as lower income, older adults, indigenous communities, newcomers to Canada, people with disabilities, and those living in rural or remote communities. OPEN researchers use geospatial data to examine the availability of community pharmacies and pharmacist services for a number of populations of interest. This work includes investigating the use of interactive mapping applications that provide flexible geospatial data to knowledge users and is identifying the capacity of current data sets to support these applications.

Sex & Gender

Sex and gender represent cross-cutting themes in OPEN’s work and intersect with other dimensions of patient identity such as race, ethnicity, age, immigration status, geography, and sexuality. OPEN researchers incorporate gender and sex-based analyses throughout their research projects, from study design to knowledge translation and examines how pharmacy practice research, in general, has and has not been considering sex and gender in its work
