Conference paper
Part of the Health Systems Research book series (HEALTH)


This paper describes a study which established the stock control needs of hospital pharmacy. The main interest of the paper, however, lies in the way in which these needs were developed into a technique for use by those assessing pharmacy computer systems at local level. It is suggested that this approach has great benefits, and can be used in other technical areas.
