As the pharmacy environment continues to change rapidly, the Pharmacy Barometer provides the profession with independent qualitative and quantitative research on the perceptions, attitudes, knowledge, experiences and behaviours of community pharmacists as they relate to the future professional practice and business of Community Pharmacy.
The Pharmacy Barometer report is compiled and released annually, with a series of standard questions asked in each survey to examine the change in confidence and behaviours over time. These will be supplemented by several questions on the “issue of the day”, providing stakeholders with an insight into both short and long term concerns.
