Abstract:

Objective: Determine the impact of a third year pharmacotherapeutics lab on subsequent clinical skills of fourth year students. Methods: Clinical faculty completed a clinical skills evaluation tool for students they precepted on the first Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience (APPE) of the fourth year. The tool examined nine clinical skills on a five point Likert scale (1 being always and 5 being never). The tool was completed in the third week of the first APPE. The evaluation was performed the year before and the year after the lab course was implemented. Not all students had their first APPE with clinical faculty and therefore this is a sample of convenience. The lab course included mock ambulatory care experiences and evolving case studies. The lab was designed to improve application of knowledge and better prepare students for APPE's. Results: The sample involved 39.7% (n=23) of the class who did not have the lab and 39.3% (n=22) of those having the lab. Those students having the lab scored better (i.e., lower mean scores) on eight of the nine skills examined compared to those not having the lab. The score for the one remaining item did not change. Students taking the lab had a lower clinical skills mean compared to those who had not had the lab (2.6 and 2.9, respectively; p=0.05). Implications: The pharmacotherapeutics lab appears to impact students' clinical skills. Improvement in these areas will help students gain greater knowledge from the initial APPE.
