Abstract

Objective: To investigate patient preferences on community pharmacist-led practice-based research to inform the development of a multi-site, practice-based research protocol.

Methods: Paper surveys were administered at the point-of-care to patients eligible to participate in a COPD disease state management (DSM) program. Eligibility was determined based on fill history and the survey was completed anonymously. Descriptive statistics are reported.

Results: A total of 22 individuals were recruited to participate during the five months of data collection, and 12 participated (55% response rate). When asked if their pharmacist could play a role in improving the patient’s COPD control, 92% of patients agreed or strongly agreed. A majority of patients (92%,) agreed that they would be interested in participating in pharmacist-led COPD research study that lasted at most 6 months, with 75% of patients agreeing to meet with the pharmacist up to 30 minutes during each appointment.

Conclusions: This patient perceptions study demonstrated that the majority of COPD patients were willing to participate in pharmacy research at their local community pharmacy and viewed a reasonable length of study duration of 6 months with 30 minutes per pharmacy visit.
