To Whom it may concern,
Re: The University of Canberra – Global Pharmacy Support Workforce Survey.
Friday the 8th March to Monday the 9th April 2012
We would like to request access to your membership network to invite members to participate in the
Global Pharmacy Support Workforce Survey.
Effective and available medications are integral to healthcare. Adequately trained professionals are
essential to efficiently procure, transport, store and supply medications. The characterisation of the Pharmacy
Support Workforce is of great importance, particularly in low income countries where shortages of pharmacists
mean other cadres have extended responsibilities but also in developed countries where well trained support
staffs allow pharmacists more time for clinical activities which can translate into improved patient health
outcomes and savings in health expenditure.
What we hope to identify from this research.
 The titles given to the positions involved in supplying medicines in public and private systems.
 The task and responsibility sets assigned by countries to these cadres.
 Where, and how, the Pharmacy Support Workforce are educated and trained.
 Are these programmes accredited? If yes, how, and by whom?
 What is the size of the workforce?
 Are the workers regulated? Are they licensed or certified? Do they have a legally defined scope of
Who will be surveyed?
The Research population will include academics, ministry of health and/or education officials and key
stakeholders accessed through the following networks;
 FIP (International Pharmaceutical Federation) -Pharmacy Education Taskforce,
 The World Health Organisation
 International Association Public Health Logisticians
 Global Health Workforce Alliance
 The People That Deliver Initiative
 United Nations Education Science and Cultural Organisation
 Health Workforce Education and Training- Best in Practice Initiative

    Welcome to the Communication Platform for Pharmacists in the Western Pacific Region!
    The Pharmacists’ Forum is intended as a discussion platform for pharmacists to share information on all aspects of pharmacy in their countries, with the guidance of topics proposed by the WPPF Executives. Every two months, the WPPF Executives Board will propose a topic focusing on either pharmacy practice in the hospital or community setting, pharmacy education or other issues concerning pharmacy in the Western Pacific Region. Through the development of the FIP Global Hospital Pharmacy Consensus Statements, WPPF would like to start off topics concerning Hospital Pharmacy by proposing questions deriving from the FIP document. Through the exchange of experiences on this Pharmacists’ Forum, WPPF wishes to foster closer ties between pharmacy professionals in our region and to advance pharmacy practice and education through the cross fertilization of ideas.
