Questionnaire on pharmaceutical
To evaluate the construct validity, a factor analysis was performed using principal component extraction and calculation of the Pearson correlation coefficient.
A panel of judges composed of pharmaceutical care professors, a statistician, two community pharmacists and two patients—that have received pharmaceutical care—assessed face and content validity. However, with the reforms introduced in the last years and the growing relevance of continuous quality improvement, researchers in Spanish-speaking countries have begun to assess patient satisfaction with health care, increasing the number of studies recently undertaken [ 7—9 ].
Data obtained from a patient satisfaction survey can be used for different purposes, such as the identification of potential areas for health care services improvement [ 2 ]; the comparison of the quality of different care programs and systems; and the detection of patients likely to disenroll from health care plans [ 4 ].
On the basis of data obtained from the Pilot Test, we decided to maintain all the items, although four items were rephrased and five were relocated in the questionnaire. Finally, new items were added, in order to assess comprehensively pharmaceutical care as practiced in our country.
Sample questionnaire for pharmacists
The instrument also included questions about: demographic information, pharmacy patronage, number of prescriptions in the last month, number of medicines they were taking and drug insurance. Therefore, the development and validation of such an instrument or translation and adaptation of a validated instrument is necessary to help researchers who are interested in exploring the quality of health care systems and patient satisfaction with services provided by pharmacists in Arabic countries. We considered the following to revise and modify the original questionnaire: Respondents assessed the instrument positively, mean values for each item being between 3. For an expected reliability coefficient of 0. The second part concerned demographic characteristics of the participants including age, sex, education level, occupation, annual number of pharmacy visits, and number of drugs dispensed per visit. The concept of pharmaceutical care is now widely applied by pharmacists. Questionnaire evaluates cumulative experience of patients with comprehensive pharmaceutical care practice in community pharmacies. Abbreviation: SD, standard deviation. Only 31 pharmacies in the province provided pharmaceutical care, with activities of patient education and counselling and drug therapy assessment, so they were all included. With the worldwide adoption of pharmaceutical care practice, the need for patient-oriented assessment questionnaires emerged.
These questionnaires have gone through a testing process and have been proven to be psychometrically useful [ 171825 ]. The pharmacists attended seminars and received written instructions in order to deepen their knowledge about the topic and standardize their research in the pharmacies.
