The Pharmacy Guild of Australia has in place a vetting process for proposed industry surveys and studies which involve community pharmacists and pharmacy staff. Many field research operators may seek to collect and use information for purposes not necessarily in the interest of those surveyed. It is therefore desirable that the credentials and objectives of the researchers be clearly ascertained beforehand. The Guild can do this more readily than individual members.
Each survey is approved for a limited time-frame – most for one month. In the case of long-standing/periodic surveys, approval is reviewed annually.
For more information, please email Guild.Nat@guild.org.au
If members require clarification on any surveys, questionnaires conducted by companies, individuals or market research groups, they are encouraged to contact the National Secretariat of the Guild or the State and Territory Branches before participating.
