Community Pharmacist Engagement in Hepatitis C and HIV Prevention: A Feasibility Study ASRL will be working in conjunction with Dr. Hagemeier and College of Pharmacy on this project, which aims to 1) qualitatively evaluate community pharmacists’ non-prescription syringe dispensing knowledge, attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors by conducting 15 key informant interviews with licensed, community pharmacists across three states; and 2) quantitatively evaluate Northeast Tennessee, Southwest Virginia, and Western North Carolina community pharmacists’ non-prescription syringe dispensing knowledge, attitudes, beliefs, and behavior via a telephone survey of 300 randomly selected community pharmacists. This research will provide preliminary data for NIH proposals that explore syringe dispensing feasibility and intervention studies in non-metro areas. Engagement of community pharmacists in HIV/HCV prevention could have significant public health impact in our region and beyond..
