The 2021 OTC Recommendations Survey was conducted by EnsembleIQ, Research, Insights and Innovation team and the following publications and websites: Pharmacy Practice + Business, The Medical Post, Profession Santé, CanadianHealthcareNetwork.ca and ProfessionSanté.ca. This annual survey was conducted online between October 2020 and January 2021 with Canadian retail pharmacists and physicians.
