実務実習における学習の修得度と不安に関する薬学生の自己評価 Self-Evaluation of Pharmacy Students about the Learning Effects and the Feelings of Anxiety in Advanced Pharmacy Practical Experience
In this study a questionnaire was administered to fifth–year pharmacy students at Meijo University who had participated in advanced pharmacy practical experiences（APPEs）. The objective of this study was to investigate the degree of acquisition（4 items）by these students after APPEs and the feelings of anxiety and fatigue（5 items）that resulted from the APPEs. The APPEs were provided at a community pharmacy and a hospital, and each session lasted 11 weeks.<br>1）Regardless of whether the participants had their first APPE sessions at a community pharmacy or a hospital, their self–evaluation revealed that after the first APPE session, their knowledge, skills, and attitude about their duties had improved and that their understanding of their mission was enhanced. These findings suggest that effective learning occurred during the first APPE session.<br>2）Throughout the APPE period, the participants did not feel intense anxiety about the instructions or advice they received from coaching pharmacists or faculty instructors.<br>3）The participants felt mental fatigue more intensely than physical fatigue throughout the APPE period. However, the fatigue they felt was less intense than that predicted before training. Perceived fatigue was more intense when the APPEs were held at a hospital rather than at a community pharmacy.
