Evaluation of its Representativeness to the Population of Newfoundland and Labrador


23 June 2015


The Newfoundland and Labrador Pharmacy Network is a province-wide drug information system that offers comprehensive real-time medication profiles, and an interactive database to assist pharmacists in identifying potential adverse drug interactions and events. This evaluation assessed whether or not the Pharmacy Network population is representative of the general population of Newfoundland and Labrador in terms of demographic characteristics, health service utilization and burden of illness. The report identified significant differences between the two groups across every measure investigated, meaning the Pharmacy Network group, as it currently exists, is not representative of the general population.
