Abstract

This manuscript describes the implementation of a disease management course and outcomes associated with applying a disease management course quality improvement (DMCQI) program at the University of Georgia College of Pharmacy. The DMCQI program was first implemented in Fall of 1996, and the purpose of the program was to improve the disease management course. One-hundred and one and 115 second-year pharmacy students were enrolled in the Disease Management I Course (DM1C) in the Fall 1996 Semester (first class offering) and in the Fall 1997 Semester (second class offering), respectively. The DMCQI program consisted of: (i) forming a student-faculty council that reported suggestions to improve the course; (ii) surveying all students with a 34-item questionnaire regarding their perceptions of the effectiveness of the DM1C; (iii) surveying all students to determine whether they were taught the preselected competency-based skills associated with the DM1C; and (iv) surveying all students to determine whether they believed that they could perform these competency-based skills. Students in the 1997 DM1C achieved higher scores on the 34-item questionnaire (higher scores on the questionnaire indicate more positive feelings toward the course with 170 representing the highest achievable score and 34 representing the lowest) than students in the 1996 course, 128.81 compared to 136.34 (P<0.001). A greater percentage of students in the 1997 course believed that they could perform the DM1C competency-based skills compared to the 1996 students (P<0.001), and the student-faculty council had more positive feelings about the course in 1997 then in 1996. Implementation of the DMCQI program enhanced pharmacy students' perception and value of the DM1C. The DM1C is a vital part of the College's new curriculum.
