This study evaluated the effects of an intervention on rates of skin cancer prevention counseling by pharmacists.
Fifty-four pharmacies were randomly assigned to intervention or control conditions.
Intervention consisted of training, feedback, and prompts.
Counseling rates before and after the intervention were obtained from study confederates.
At pretest, the proportions of control and intervention sites providing counseling at least one were 7.4% and 0%, respectively (NS).
At prottest, these proportions were 3.7% and 66.7%, respectively (P<. 001).
The results indicated that the intervetion was successful and that pharmacists can play an important role in educating the public about skin cancer prevention strategies.
