What is the purpose of this study?
The goal of this 3-month study is to increase Alabama community pharmacists’ awareness, knowledge, confidence, and intentions in dispensing naloxone using evidence-based strategies to set up or streamline naloxone services in their pharmacies. By exploring changes in pharmacists’ knowledge, confidence, intentions, and naloxone-related activities before and after receipt of a naloxone training program newly created specifically for Alabama community pharmacists, we hope to learn whether our training program is useful and effective, and improve patient access to naloxone.
What will your participation involve?
If you decide to participate in this research study, you will be randomly assigned to either an intervention or control group. Intervention group participants will immediately receive a free ACPE-accredited continuing education (CE) program; control group participants will not immediately receive the training, but will be provided with the free CE program after the conclusion of the 3-month study. Regardless of group assignment, you will be asked to complete three 15-minute online surveys to track your knowledge and activities during the 3-month study period.
At the conclusion of this study, you will be able to...
1. Describe naloxone administration techniques and current policies in Alabama
2. Discuss strategies to market naloxone and integrate naloxone services into the dispensing workflow
3. Discuss strategies to approach and communicate with patients about receiving naloxone
