Effectiveness of and Satisfaction With a Pharmacist-managed Travel Medicine Clinic

2015-12-10 02:38:23 | BioPortfolio


This study will evaluate the clinical effectiveness of, and patient satisfaction with, pre-travel consultations provided by a pharmacist with specialty training in travel medicine and the authorization to prescribe medications and administer vaccinations.


The study will be conducted at the Travel Health Network, a full-service travel medicine clinic located in St. Albert, Alberta. Care will be provided by a pharmacist with a specialized practice in travel medicine, authorization to prescribe vaccines and prescription drugs, and authorization to administer vaccines by injection.

The study will be a prospective mixed-methods cohort study, describing patients receiving care from a pharmacist-managed travel medicine clinic and their travel health needs, and evaluating their adherence to recommended vaccines and oral therapies, satisfaction with the care provided, and their health status and management of health issues arising while travelling. Chart reviews will elicit descriptive quantitative data related to patients' travel medicine needs and adherence to recommended vaccinations and oral pharmacotherapy, followed by surveys containing open-ended qualitative questions to elicit overall patient satisfaction and the management of any health issues encountered during travel. Due to the nature of the study involving patients presenting to the clinic for a consultation, neither a control group nor blinding is possible.

A convenience sample of 100 subjects will be enrolled.
