Survey Approvals

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.

The following is a summary of the Ratings used by the Guild.
