Research Question • Did the orientation and utilization of the NLM databases enhance pharmacy student research skills during clinical rotations?
Clinical Rotation Responsibilities • Journal Club Reviews • Drug Information Questions • Grand Rounds • Research Projects - American Society of Health-Systems Pharmacists (ASHP) presentations - Florida Pharmacy Association (FPA) presentations • Community Health Fairs and Patient Educational posters
Study Design • Test subjects: 108 3rd prof. year pharmacy students • Control group: 62 students did not receive NLM training • Test group: 46 students received NLM training during Drug Information course.
Outcome Measurements • Students will be surveyed at the conclusion of clinical rotations (prior to graduation) • Measurements: Level of difficulty in finding- - full text articles - consumer information - clinical trial information - sources used for HIV/AIDS consultations
During “final week” prior to graduation, remaining 62 pharmacy students will be trained
Benefits • Impact on lives of Nims Students • “I don’t want to be fat when I get old.” • “I want to be like Barry Bonds and he eats healthy.” • “I don’t want diabetes like my grandmother. They had to cut off her leg.” • “It’s not fair that black people get more sick.” • “I can help my mom with her medication.” • “Hey, what’s an adverse reaction?” • “This is cool!”
Benefits • Impact on FAMU COPPS faculty/staff • “I already use MEDLINEplus in my class, but I didn’t know about all of this.” • “Can you teach a segment of my Research Course (Public Health graduate students) this summer, they can really benefit from this.” • “I teach Drug Information and didn’t know all of this was available.”
Benefits • Impact on pharmacy students • “Now I know how to find a full text article.” • “This is good for explaining things to patients.” • “Do they really do clinical trials in Tallahassee?” • “Everyone can benefit from AIDSinfo… from patients to clinicians.”
Benefits • Impact on patients of the BCHC • This is yet to be determined. Patients are hungry for health information and we anticipate a high level of enthusiasm for the project.
Hind Sight • Don’t try to reach everyone this time • Plan to do project in phases • Utilize committed public librarians to assist with training • Be realistic about the elasticity of $20,000
The Future • Possible Sources of future funding • National Center for Research Resources (NCRR) • Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) • National Science Foundation (NSF) • Howard Hughes Foundation
