A team based in Public Health has been contracted to conduct an evaluation of a recent demonstration site initiative being conducted in some community pharmacies in Canterbury. The goal of the new model operating in the demonstration pharmacies is to enable pharmacists to better utilise their extensive expertise in medicines management to support patients in the safe and effective use of medicines.
The evaluation of the demonstration sites will run over two years and is designed to investigate how pharmacists work with the model. Specifically, the goal is to identify what barriers and facilitators can be identified that might influence the success of the initiative.
