Abstract

The Wisconsin Pharmacy Examining Board developed a self-assessment called the Pharmacy Self-Inspection Project. Its purpose was to be an effective continuing education and communication vehicle for pharmacists in a positive rather than adversarial environment. Eighty-six percent of the 1080 eligible managing pharmacists in Wisconsin participated in the statewide self-inspection process. Participants evaluated the Project favorably and agreed that the self-inspection should be conducted again in the future. Pharmacists who participated in the self-inspection were more compliant with pharmacy regulations, made more changes in their practice, and had more favorable attitudes towards the Project than those who did not participate.
