Abstract/Summary AIM The aim of this project, funded as part of the Third Community Pharmacy Agreement between the Commonwealth and the Pharmacy Guild of Australia, was to evaluate the effectiveness and cost effectiveness of Dose Administration Aids (DAAs) in the community and Residential Care Facility (RCF) settings. Of particular interest were the effects of DAAs on medication management for community patients and RCF staff, and the impact of providing DAAs on the pharmacies that do so. This report addresses the following issues and questions: 1. Are DAAs effective in the community setting? 2. Are DAAs cost effective in the community setting? 3. Are DAAs effective in the RCF setting? 4. Are DAAs cost effective in the RCF setting? 5. What are the requirements for best practice DAA provision?
