Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this study was to determine if a relationship exists between a Competency Index Score and the following: educational background, professional attitudes toward the changing role of the pharmacist, participation in continuing pharmaceutical education, and various demographic and miscellaneous characteristics. A mail questionnaire was sent to a random sample of 400 pharmacists within the states of Oregon and Idaho. A second mailing was sent to nonrespondents. The total number of usable questionnaires returned in both mailings was 224, which was a 56.0% response rate. The chi-square statistic was used to test for significant relationships between the Competency Index Score and other variables. A strong relationship (P<:0.05) was found between competency scores and the following: (1) length of education; (2) year of graduation from pharmacy school; (3) professional attitudes toward the changing role of the pharmacist; (4) age; (5) practice setting; (6) sex; and (7) the types of pharmaceutical journals read most often. There was no statistically significant relationship found between the Competency Index Score and the following: (1) participation in an externship; (2) participation in a clinical experience; (3) participation in a residency program; (4) participation in continuing pharmaceutical education programs; (5) part-time versus full-time employment; (6) membership in professional organizations; (7) distance traveled to continuing education programs; (8) opinion on mandatory continuing education; and (9) the respondent's opinion on the usefulness of continuing education programs.
