Matheson, Catriona, Bond, Christine M. and Tinelli, Michela (2007) Community pharmacy harm reduction services for drug misusers: national service delivery and professional attitude development over a decade in Scotland. Journal of public health, 29 (4). pp. 350-357. ISSN 1741-3842
Community pharmacy contributes to drug misuse management and reduced spread of blood-borne disease through distributing clean needles and substitute drug dispensing. This paper reports a third Scotland-wide survey of pharmacies enabling service delivery to be charted over a decade. A cross sectional postal questionnaire of all Scottish pharmacies (n=1166) was undertaken. Descriptive data were collected on services provided, attitudes, training and demography. Data were compared with data from 1995 and 2000.
