    Abstract

    Background: Integrating pharmacists into general practice is not a novel concept. However, it is new to Australia and evidence supporting this role is limited. Aim: To seek the views of pharmacists, general practitioners and consumers on integrating pharmacists into general practice. Method: Questionnaires were used to elicit the opinions of pharmacists, general practitioners and consumers on integrating pharmacists into general practice. Results: 1038 participants (829 pharmacists, 167 consumers, 42 general practitioners) completed the survey. Commonly agreed roles for pharmacists in general practice included drug information and medication review. Perceived barriers to service provision included the pharmacist's clinical ability and turf protection.
