dc.description.abstract Examines pharmaceutical retail from a systems perspective, in order to observe the retail system in interaction with its environment. A systems model is developed using information concerning the retail pharmacy and its environment. Aspects such as components of the system (the pharmacists), management and goals of the system receive attention. The environment with which retail pharmacies interact is analysed, with reference to power relations and intersystemic connections. Critical areas for the retail pharmacy, both within and from out side the environment, are also analysed. Attention is focused on shortcomings, such as the lack of effective planning. Suggestions are made to fulfill these shortcomings, while the handling of problem intersystemic connections is addressed. It is found that, if retail pharmacies are to persist, attention will have to be given to certain important aspects of the industry, with the systematic exclusion of non-professional trade activities. en
