Community Pharmacy Professionals Advancing Safety in Saskatchewan (COMPASS) is a standardized continuous quality improvement (CQI) program specific to Saskatchewan community pharmacies. The COMPASS program includes safety-related tools for anonymous reporting of medication incidents, proactive review of pharmacy processes and documentation of improvement plan development and monitoring. All the tools and processes are provided and supported by ISMP Canada, which is a safety-focused, evidence-based national organization.
The strength of the COMPASS program comes from Saskatchewan community pharmacies contributing to a national database called Canada’s National Incident Data Repository for Community Pharmacies, which contributes to the Canadian Medication Incident Reporting and Prevention System (CMIRPS). The CMIRPS is a collaborative pan-Canadian program designed to reduce and prevent harmful medication incidents in Canada.
