PHARMACY RESEARCH PRIORITIES IN MALAYSIA
The Ministry of Health is committed to transform the health system towards better health services delivery for the rakyat. Pharmaceutical services, being an integral part of the health system, must be able to meet the healthcare needs and expectations of the people. Accordingly, the Pharmaceutical Services Programme recognised that scientific research is the fundamental to aid in policy decision-making and subsequently drive new policies and achieve the goals stipulated in the Pharmacy Programme Strategic Plan 2017-2020. Therefore, setting the priorities for pharmacy research is absolutely crucial to bridge knowledge gaps, maximise resources and support the development of evidence-based policies. It is with deep satisfaction that the Pharmaceutical Services Programme has conceptualised the research priorities specifically for the pharmacy profession and pharmaceutical services in Malaysia
The main objective of outlining the Pharmacy Research Priorities in Malaysia is to streamline research activities to produce relevant data and evidence needed to fill the critical knowledge gaps to address national problems. FIVE research priority domains and a number of research scopes/areas have been identified.
Individuals and healthcare organisations embarking on research are encouraged to use these research priority areas to design and shape their future research proposals.
The five research priority domain are 1) Access to medicines 2) Monitoring and evaluation of outcomes 3) Quality and safe use of medicine and sustainability 4) Optimisation of therapy and pharmacy services delivery and 5) National databases / Big data analytics
