Koffi C, Wang C, Gao Y and Moultry AM

Objective: A study was conducted to determine program participants’ perception of fourth year pharmacist interns in a culturally adapted community program focused on improving medication adherence.
Methods: Students participated in translation, recruitment, pre- and post- program screening, and reminder phone calls to program enrollees. An 8 question survey using a likert scale was developed and administered to participants at the end of the program.
Results: There was a 100% “Always” report in three questions that inquired about the pharmacist interns’ contribution to the participants’ learning, and the program participants “Always” felt like their time was well spent with the pharmacist interns.
Conclusion: Patients perceived the involvement of pharmacist interns in the implementation of a culturally adapted community program as positive.
