The questionnaires were reviewed by a panel of pharmacists (n = 8), consumer representatives (n = 2) and experts in the field (n = 9) before piloting with four community pharmacists (postal questionnaire) and twenty-five consumers (ephone interviews). Based on feedback received, minor adjustments were made to the wording of the questions. Any changes derived from feedback were reflected across all three questionnaires.

Therefore, informed by the findings of our two previous exploratory qualitative studies on CMI use in Australia, we conducted a study which aimed to: (1) determine preferences for CMI provision and (2) identify the barriers and facilitators to the utilisation of CMI from the perspectives of consumers, GPs and community pharmacists.

Healthcare professionals report usually discussing CMI when providing it to patients, although continued improvements in dissemination rates are desirable. Regular use of CMI remains a challenge, and ongoing strategies to promote CMI use are necessary to improve uptake of CMI in Australia.

ABSTRACT Providing written medicine information to consumers enables them to make informed decisions about their medicines, playing an important role in.

Regular use of CMI remains a challenge, and ongoing strategies to promote CMI use are necessary to improve uptake of CMI in Australia. Healthcare professionals report usually discussing CMI when providing it to patients, although continued improvements in dissemination rates are desirable.

About 88% of consumers reported receiving CMI as a package insert, however most pharmacists (99%) and GPs (56%) reported providing computer-generated CMI.
