Global Pharmacy Support Workforce Survey
On behalf of its member the University of Canberra, the Alliance would like to invite its members to participate in the 2012 Global Pharmacy Support Workforce Review for Non-Pharmacist Roles.
Efficacious and accessible medications are integral to the health care system. To efficiently procure, transport, store and supply medications it is essential that workers are adequately trained. In low income countries, the shortage of pharmacists has required other health workers to have extended responsibilities. In developed countries pharmacists working with capable support staff have more time for clinical activities.
This survey will examine the size and variety of roles in the Pharmacy Support Workforce, including the expected responsibilities, education/training requirements, accreditation and registration. The results of this survey will be made freely available through publication, serving as an adjunct to the International Pharmaceutical Federations 2012 Global Pharmacy Workforce Report.
The survey is open until 9 April. It will take around 20 minutes to complete.
