Pharmaceutical care models and practices differ in various countries. Reimbursement for cognitive services, for example, varies across countries in Europe, Asia, and the Americas. Practice-based research has blossomed in many countries, with different emphases and challenges. This international series will describe the organization of community pharmacy within the healthcare system and report the status of practice-based research. Each paper will focus on one country. The series will conclude with a summary by the series editors describing the key themes across the papers, outlining milestones yet to be achieved, and proposing a research agenda for community pharmacy practice.
