Project Summary

The report Value of Professional Pharmacist Services was originally published in 1998. It provided a compilation of published Australian and international literature from 1990 to June 1998 that was applicable to community pharmacy and that assessed pharmacist services in terms of potential cost-savings and quality of care.

This report updated the original publication. In addition to updating the Australian and international literature since June 1998, this report provided an evidence-based review of the literature. The review evaluated the strength of the evidence for the effectiveness and economic benefit of various Pharmacist Professional Services, and an evaluation of the outcomes measured in the studies.
