Alabama pharmacists were surveyed by researchers from the University of Alabama at Birmingham's School of Public Health in collaboration with investigators at the Schools of Pharmacy at Auburn University and Samford University as part of a statewide pharmacists'demonstration project to mobilize pharmacists and pharmacy locations as information resources for HIV/AIDS education and prevention.
The objectives of the survey were to :
(1) establish a baseline of knowledge and attitudes among Alabama pharmacists about HIV/AIDS ;
(2) to assess Alabama pharmacists'willingness to assume the role of HIV/AIDS information resources in their communities ;
and (3) to identify perceived barriers to assuming the role of information resources.
The results of the survey were used in the development of an educational intervention program and will be used subsequently to assess the impact of the implementation of the Alabama demonstration project.
Findings from this project will serve as a basis for development of a nationwide project as part of a collaborative agreement between the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Partnership Program and the Foundation of Pharmacists and Corporate America for AIDS Education.
