Have you got any constructive criticism of the design of this piece of research?
“I’m not actually sure what the research design is. There’s no mention of one. The poster talks about how data was collected. As this is an audit it is not technically research, so a bit more detail about who specifically used the portal would be helpful.”
“It doesn’t answer a meaningful question. Specifically, there is no patient-centred outcome, and in fact, the only published outcomes were subjective and biased opinions of the enrollees. Of course, people are going to think that their involvement will benefit the patient.”
“Only self-assessment by the pharmacist accessing the portal is used as a measure of improved patient safety and benefit to the patient.”
“The conclusions section could have perhaps been made more visual with a new line for each sentence/point given.”
“This is a good attempt and I commend any community pharmacist for finding the time to complete any type of research/audit like this. The study design needs some work and in general needs, some more work on the question answered however it is a good attempt. Well done.”
