[e-drug] Funding model and contracting options for community pharmacist services

E-DRUG: Funding model and contracting options for community pharmacist services
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear E-druggers,

In or around 2009, a working group involving representatives from New Zealand's 
Pharmacy Guild, Pharmaceutical Society and a group of 14 DHBs got together to 
consider funding and contracting approaches for various categories of client 
populations served by community pharmacists. 

The result was a discussion paper entitled "Funding Model and Contracting 
Options for Community Pharmacist Services", which was compiled by Alexander 
Consulting Ltd in April 2009. 
It is still downloadable from: 
https://www.southerndhb.govt.nz/files/20091207142222-1260148942-12.pdf 

I am interested in knowing if the recommendations from this event were 
eventually approved for implementation by the pharmacy authorities in New 
Zealand and would appreciate any links to any follow-up documents. 

Also, is anyone aware of similar approached implemented in other countries?

Thanks,
