In 1991 the lllawarra Pharmacists Association in conjunction with the lllawarra Public Health Unit and the University of Wollongong Department of Mathematics undertook the Pharmacy Exit Survey. This was a cross-sectional survey administered to purchasers of anti-asthma medications throughout community pharmacies in the lllawarra. This survey was repeated in 1995 allowing evaluation of improvements in adult asthma between 1991 and 1995 possibly due to local and national initiatives.
