Exploring the readiness of community pharmacies for practice change within Saudi Arabia: towards the 2030 national vision
This research is a result of a collaboration between academic institutes in Saudi Arabia and University of Gothenburg (GU). The research work is performed by a GU-based PhD student including field visits and data collection in Saudi Arabia.
The overall goal is to assess the readiness of the community pharmacist, pharmacies (service providers), the public and policy makers towards the 2030 national vision and health system re-engineering plans. More specifically, this research work will investigate existing evidence from the literature, address key contextual factors related to the stakeholders’ perception and preparedness, and investigate Health System and operational aspects for building recommendations and guidelines. A mixed-method approach will be employed including an interventional design in the Eastern region of the country.
