Objective: To analyse the prevalence and factors associated with the provision of primary preventive services for cardiovascular disease (CVD) in Australia?s community pharmacies. Methods: The data were from the 2002 Australia?s National Pharmacy Database Project. Questionnaires were completed by a nationally representative 1,131 out of a possible 1,391 pharmacies (81.3 response rate), stratified into PhARIA (remoteness) zones. Preventive services for CVD were analysed by frequency of provision of services. Ordinal analysis and logistic regression analysis were used to ascertain predictors of services.
