Do pharmacy owners really have all the power?

Pharmacists love their work but appear unhappy about working conditions

Many pharmacists believe they are underpaid and that owners have all the power, according to an Australian study.


And while pharmacists are glad to have jobs, they fear these will be harder to find in the future.

The study is based on the views of 306 experienced pharmacists (83%) and interns, who shared their opinions with researchers from the University of Canberra and Queensland University of Technology.

The majority of pharmacists surveyed are highly satisfied with their roles, particularly the patient contact.
