The Guild is encouraging pharmacists to give their feedback on the implementation of the PTP

Healthcare Management Advisors is undertaking the implementation review of the Pharmacy Trial Program on behalf of the Department of Health.

The PTP was established under the Sixth Community Pharmacy Agreement to trial new and expanded community pharmacy programs which seek to improve the clinical outcomes for consumers and/or extend the role of pharmacists in the delivery of primary health care services.

As part of the review, all pharmacists are invited to participate in a survey (irrespective of their familiarity with the PTP).

Pharmacist perspectives (which will remain anonymous) will inform assessment of the level of awareness of and access to the PTP; and suitability of research methodologies and strategies to drive innovation and collaboration in pharmacy practice.

Data from this survey will be analysed and synthesised with other information gathered throughout the review process.

“The Guild appreciates your input to inform our recommendations for the future of the PTP,” the organisation said in a statement.

The pharmacist survey is available at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Implementation_Review_Pharmacy_Trial_Program

The survey will close 30 April 2019 at midnight.

    Whatever happened to all the trials “results”?

      They go missing in the cyberspace.
      The real problem with current pharmacy programs is that they are not part of a patient cantered strategy/plan. The current programs don’t target patients/community needs but only taxpayers money.

          Thank you Dr. I am all for removing all the shady CPA services that fund our inefficient pharmacy industry.

          It is time for our pharmacy industry to evolve and offer a world-class service to our patients.

    The trial initiated by ?Monash University whereby the most vulnerable patients getting discharged from hospital are followed up and counselled by their community pharmacist is one to throw your money at. Needs proper planning and structure to work but I can definitely see less medication misadventure and positive health outcomes arising from this. Also brings the profession together (hospital and community) with a focus on the health and well-being of those we’re looking after.
