Pharmacy has a long and successful tradition in research based in the biological and physical sciences.
In recent years, however, the profession has taken steps to develop a scientific basis with which to underpin professional policy, practice and services.
In so doing, it was recognised that development of the traditional research approaches was needed in order to describe and evaluate the complex situations encountered in modern practice.
The research portfolio needs to encompass the social sciences and humanities and to embrace qualitative as well as quantitative methods.
This paper describes some of the initiatives developed in areas such as research training and supporting practitioner-led research.
