Pharmacists in Saskatchewan: Public Perceptions and Attitudes Towards Pharmacists in Saskatchewan with National Comparisons

Over the last several years, the Pharmacy Association of Saskatchewan, in partnership with CPhA, has commissioned yearly public opinion surveys on public perceptions and attitudes towards pharmacists in Saskatchewan and across Canada. The public surveys are conducted by Abacus Data. Below are the 2018 and 2019 surveys.

Pharmacists in Canada Survey

2019 online survey was conducted with 3,219 Canadians over 18 years of age from February 26th to March 7th, 2019. The survey found people in Saskatchewan recognize the seriousness of an aging population and the strain it will have on the health system. Participants were then asked questions around the pharmacist role within caring for an aging population. The survey found this concern is held by many older residents, particularly women. The survey breaks down into 5 sections from the innovations in health care delivery to how comfortable people are with pharmacists doing more to sustain the health system.
