Abstract:

Objective: To evaluate the impact of pharmacy experience, scholastic performance, age, education, and self review on clinical confidence and knowledge retention in second year pharmacy students.
Methods: This sequential cross-sectional study evaluated second-year pharmacy students in the Spring 2006 semester. An 11-item demographic questionnaire was administered to evaluate pharmacy experience over the summer of 2005, during the previous academic year, and prior to admission. Information regarding grade point average (GPA), age, education, and student self review of therapeutics was also collected. To measure retention of knowledge, two 90-question assessment tests, evaluating 18 therapeutic topics on previously taught material were administered. Test #1 was administered to section A (50% of the class). Test #2 was administered to section B (remaining 50%). To assess clinical confidence, a 28-item questionnaire using a 5-point Likert attitude scale related to the topics covered on the assessment tests was administered. To evaluate the effects of pharmacy experience, GPA, age, education, and self review on knowledge retention and clinical confidence, correlation of results from the demographic questionnaire with both the assessment test and the clinical confidence questionnaire will be performed.
Results: Data analysis will be completed by May 2006. Results will be presented.
Implications: Its unknown if pharmacy experience, GPA, age, education, or self review impact clinical confidence and knowledge retention of pharmacy students. Data from this study will provide information regarding this issue and may be used in curricular development and modification, as well as for setting standards for prerequisite knowledge of pharmacy school applicants.
