The Newfoundland & Labrador Pharmacy Board (NLPB) is excited to embark on the next three years (2020-2022) with the Board approved goals and objectives outlined in this document.
In early 2019, a strategic planning and development session with Board members and NLPB staff took place to discuss challenges and opportunities for NLPB—the pharmacy regulator in Newfoundland & Labrador.
It was determined that these goals support NLPB’s vision of advancing pharmacy care for a safe and healthy community, and successfully reflect the organizations core values of accountability, collaboration, integrity, respect and transparency.
The goals encourage a positive patient experience with a focus on:
- strengthening the professional identity of pharmacy professionals to foster greater pride in providing high quality care for each and every patient
- reviewing and streamlining governing documents for simplicity and ease of use for registrants
- enhancing the quality assurance program to ensure the mandate of public protection is achieved through prompting registrant competency, high standards of practice, and to align with national quality improvement initiatives
As NLPB progresses through this strategic action plan for 2020-2022, a distinct and clear brand for the organization will be developed to effectively communicate activities and engage with the public, registrants and stakeholders.
