OBJECTIVE: To identify key determinants of practice that can influence the implementation of government-funded CPSs in a primary health network in Australia...

MCA are filled with medicines unpacked from their original packaging. Swiss pharmacists currently provide MCA for 1-2 weeks, although little and controversial information exists on the stability of repackaged medicines. OBJECTIVE: We aimed to validate the usefulness of a simple screening method capable of detecting visual stability problems with repackaged medicines...
