Abstract:

Rx for Change tobacco cessation training is a program developed by University of California San Francisco faculty, funded by the National Cancer Institute and taught in pharmacy schools. Didactic lecture, case presentation and discussion and manipulation of nicotine replacement products comprise the training. The goal of this prospective evaluation was to determine students’ level of confidence in their knowledge base about nicotine dependence, smoking intervention, and pharmacotherapeutic treatments to enhance a quit smoking attempt.

Methods: Students completed anonymous pre- and post-program surveys in the Fall 2005. A 6 hour Tobacco Cessation Curriculum was delivered in a required didactic class. The surveys assessed perceived overall counseling skills abilities, counseling skills for smoking cessation (ie. Ask, Advise, Assess, Assist, Arrange) and confidence levels of counseling and intervention skills.

Results: Eighty-five (60%) of the one hundred forty-two students enrolled in the class completed both surveys. The linked data of pre and post program self-evaluations revealed that twenty-two percent of students rated their overall ability to help patients quit smoking as good, very good or excellent before the training versus 83% after the training. Eighty-six percent of students felt moderately confident, very confident or extremely confident to provide a sensitive intervention message at the end of the training versus 44% before the training.

Conclusion: A multi-factorial training session in the pharmacy curriculum for these students improved pharmacy students’ confidence and skills to provide smoking cessation counseling.
