    Abstract

    Implementation is the crucial step in translating evidence-based healthcare assimilated into clinical guidelines. Effective guideline implementation Is relevant in the community pharmacy setting where pharmacists are playing an increasingly important clinical role.

    Asthma is a chronic disease associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Australian guidelines have been developed for pharmacists for the provision of non-prescription short-acting beta-agonist (SABA) asthma-reliever medications. However, there is evidence that guideline adherence is poor. The aim of this thesis was to use the example of the SABA guidelines to "Investigate and evaluate strategies for successful implementation of clinical guidelines to community pharmacy."
