Evaluation of Clinical Interventions within Community Pharmacy (PROMISe II)
|Institution:||University of Tasmania|
|Chief Investigator:||Professor Greg Peterson|
The research established a sustainable, nationwide system for the ongoing collection of information from community pharmacists identifying incidents related to medication safety and subsequent clinical interventions by community pharmacists. The achieved aims were:
- To refine and expand the present system into a fully-integrated medication incident and clinical intervention recording program that can be used by all community pharmacists.
- To produce a software application that was simple and easy to use, without being time-consuming.
- To produce an end-product that linked with other health informatics initiatives related to pharmacy practice (e.g. MediConnect, HealthConnect, Australian Adverse Drug Reaction Reporting System).
- To extensively trial the system in community pharmacies and assess its value, usefulness and relevance.
- To further develop and trial a model for payment for cognitive services by pharmacists.
