Ensuring the appropriateness of topical over-the-counter antifungal agents for clients with self-diagnosed vaginal thrush

This project aimed to demonstrate that the use of a structured questionnaire can assist pharmacists to identify patients for whom over-the-counter vaginal antifungal therapy is appropriate based on their symptoms. It also evaluated the cost benefits of allowing pharmacists to sell such products.

This project was funded by the Department of Health and Ageing via the Third Community Pharmacy Agreement.
