Abstract:

Objectives: The program is intended to:
Improve communication with Spanish speaking patients in the pharmacy setting.
Increase awareness of cultural issues.
Methods:
In 1999 Oregon Pacific Allied Health Education Center consulted with OSU College of Pharmacy to create a Spanish for Pharmacy Professionals program. The 10 hours of video and accompanying workbook are designed to focus on Spanish communication and cultural issues commonly encountered in a community pharmacy setting. Since 2002, the course has been offered to first and second year pharmacy students as a voluntary, noncredit enrichment program. One-hour sessions meet once a week throughout a term. Students who complete 90% of the sessions are awarded with a certificate and a “fiesta” to celebrate their commitment.
Results:
Each year approximately 60% of first year students enroll in the program. Approximately half of these (30% of the class) complete 90% of the program. Initial surveys indicate that students found the program worthwhile and applicable to their practice. Many students wanted additional instruction and resources. In 2006 the course was extended over two terms to accommodate more in-class activities and discussion. Results of a survey of the 2006 participants will be available.
Implications:
Significant interest in and commitment to the Spanish for Pharmacy Professionals program demonstrates the perceived value of the program to pharmacy students. Survey data also supports the value of the program. The usefulness of the program may be assessed with surveys of students after their internships. Expansion of the program is also being considered.
