We need your help

We are looking for people who have experienced a mental illness such as depression or anxiety or carers and family members to take part in a study that explores the evolving role of community pharmacy. If you live in Queensland, Western Australia or Northern Rivers (NSW) we would like to hear from you.

What's it all about?

We want to know about your experiences, needs and expectations of community pharmacies. The information you give us will inform a new program to train pharmacists and pharmacy assistants to work with consumers and carers to help them manage their medications.

What will you have to do?

We would like to ask you some questions either by phone or in a survey after you have visited your regular community pharmacy.

This will take about 10-15 minutes. The information will be anonymous and collected by a researcher employed by Griffith University. We would like to do this three times over the next 18 months. You will be reimbursed for your time.

Who is behind this project?

This project is funded by the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing as part of the Fifth Community Pharmacy Agreement Research and Development Program managed by The Pharmacy Guild of Australia. Ethics approval has been obtained from the Griffith University Human Research Ethics Committee (PHM/13/11/HREC).
