Project Details
Project ID: 2001-008
Type: Investigator Initiated
Status: Completed
Institution: University of Queensland
Chief Investigator: Dr Julie Stokes

Project Summary

The project aimed to produce a set of indicators suitable for use in benchmarking wound care practices in community pharmacy. A draft set of indicators was developed from the literature and expert consultations. The draft indicators were reviewed for relevance and feasibility by a multidisciplinary stakeholder working group. The agreed indicator set will be trialed by a pilot sample of community pharmacies. The performance of the indicators was examined for feasibility, practicality, generalisability and cost effectiveness.
