Abstract

Homelessness remains a global public health concern. A prior survey indicated the need for pharmacist training and coverage of the topic of homelessness around minimising impact of medicines use, referring for social support, confidence in broaching the subject with patients, support and guidelines for practice. The aim of this research is to explore community pharmacists’ views on the need for, type and content of a tool to support their engagement with patients who may be homeless.
