Abstract or Summary
  • Empathy and its development are crucial for student pharmacists and other health professional students. Methods of developing and maintaining high levels, however, are still being researched. To determine the impact of a short literary fiction intervention on empathy levels in student pharmacists, participants in this study were randomized to a control or intervention group and completed initial and final empathy assessments using the Jefferson Scale of Empathy – Health Profession Students version (JSE-HPS). Although there were no statistically significant differences between the cumulative scores of the control or intervention groups, results suggested that a difference between groups would be validated if the study were sufficiently powered. Further research is needed with larger sample sizes to verify the effectiveness of this low-intensity intervention when power is sufficient.
