Metered dose inhalers (MDI) are commonly used by asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients. Incorrect MDI technique by patients leads to poor outcome of the treatment. Insufficient skill in the use of MDI device by pharmacists worldwide was reported. The aim of this study was to assess the community pharmacist’s competency on MDI technique use in Saudi Arabia and to identify the factors affecting the competency of MDIs use among the community pharmacists in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
