|Abstract: ||This PhD project was designed to explore the scope of Australian and Indonesian community pharmacists’ activities and the determinants of their scope of practice in supporting CVD secondary prevention.
In-depth, semi-structured interviews were conducted with community pharmacists in New South Wales (NSW) Australia (n=21 ) and in East Java Province, Indonesia (n=20). The findings of the Australian interviews were used to develop a survey instrument that was pilot-tested with 85 NSW community pharmacists. The revised survey instrument was mailed out to a random sample of 1,350 Australian community pharmacies.
The scope of Australian community pharmacist practice in CVD support ranged from medicine information provision only to comprehensive support. The determinants of their practice comprised: “people”, “environment” and “outcome” factors. CVD support is likely to be provided if community pharmacists strongly believe that this is part of their scope and if their pharmacies have adequate infrastructure and employ sufficient numbers of pharmacists with appropriate and relevant knowledge and skills.
The majority of Indonesian participants did not consider that they have a role in CVD support. There is a need for coordination across health, education and governance sectors to enhance pharmacists’ practice in chronic disease management in the primary health care setting.|
