Abstract:

Objectives: Identify, describe, and evaluate the criteria involved with preparing a pharmaceutical cache for a nonspecific disaster, select the items for the inventory of the cache using pre-existing therapeutic categories, and demonstrate clinical and organization skills using the cache as a group in a simulated disaster situation.
Methods: In this semester-long project, five groups of students will prepare a specific list and quantity of medications to treat acute conditions of and provide continuity of pharmaceutical care to disaster survivors. Each medication and dosage form must be justified based on published reports of common and disaster types of acute and chronic conditions. Student groups will be assessed using two rubrics, one regarding the assembly and justification of their written list of medications and equipment, and another outlining the evaluation of their groups’ interpersonal, clinical, and organizational performance using the cache in a training exercise.
Results: Students groups will create cache inventories and write justifications of the inventories, as well as peer review each group members’ participation in the preparation of the cache. The students will also provide written and oral feedback on the usefulness of another group’s cache in the practical evaluation.
Implications: This unique and timely innovation will not only fulfill several CAPE standards, but also will prepare students to meet health professional competencies for emergency preparedness. The role of pharmacists in both preparedness for and response to disasters is expanding, and this educational technique will immerse and push pharmacy students to fulfill these roles in the future.
