Abstract:

Objective: To determine the impact of a series of drug information cases on the level of DI skills for first year pharmacy students.
Methods: After the completion of the drug information class on DI tertiary resources, all first year pharmacy students were required to complete a series of 6 drug information case studies. One DI case was e-mailed to the students every other week. Each DI case included a patient scenario associated with a DI query that addressed a specific area (e.g., dosing, adverse events). Students were allowed to use online or hardcopy tertiary resources. In addition, students were advised to discuss their cases with their preceptors at their introductory experiential site. Following the completion of the case studies, students were asked to complete a survey.
Results: The survey was e-mailed to 110 students; 83 responded back. Ninety percent of the students indicated that the DI cases advanced their DI skills, 84% agreed that the cases increased their interest in DI, and 89% recommended this exercise for next year’s students. However, only 22% of the students discussed the cases with their preceptors.
Conclusions: Incorporating drug information case studies for first year pharmacy students improved their DI skills. Factors should be identified to facilitate more clinical discussions between pharmacy students and their preceptors during their introductory experiential program.
