Survey of community pharmacies - Supervised methadone dispensing and naloxone provision.

Submitted by LPC Office on 23 August 2017 - 3:36pm

Researchers at King’s College London NEED YOUR HELP

We will shortly be sending out 2 surveys to randomly selected community pharmacies in the UK to find out more about pharmacy practice in relation to the provision of supervised methadone dispensing and the provision of naloxone for individuals receiving opiate substitution treatment. They build on previous surveys conducted by King’s College London 12 years ago. To avoid overburdening, selected pharmacies will receive either Survey 1 or Survey 2.  If your pharmacy does receive one of our surveys, we would be very grateful if you would complete it as your response will inform the design of potential new services to be commissioned within pharmacies and develop practice to reduce the workload of pharmacists.

The surveys are part of studies being funded by National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). Survey 1 asks about current opiate substitution dispensing practices and views on a proposed future text messaging system to encourage patient attendance for supervised dosing. It will be sent out by post within the next 2 weeks to a random sample of pharmacies in England. Survey 2 asks about the provision of naloxone and will be sent out towards the end of 2017. Thank you in advance for your support.
