The Health insurance system in Taiwan has trended toward classified medicine and a referral system. The optimal goal is to reduce the burden of the health insurance system by establishing a referral system via community pharmacies and/or general practices. Individuals’ self-care behavior and ability are considered the basis of a referral system, subsequently may enhance the quality of medical service in Taiwan.
The aims of this study were to evaluate the facts of self-care capabilities of residents in the selected areas. The outcomes may provide health promotion stratagem in the future.
This "Self-care behavior Questionnaire" collected from those who visit the local community pharmacies. The Questionnaires were designed according to age, gender, education, acquisition of medical information means, using nutritional supplements.
The numbers of the participant were similar in both gender, ages were mainly between 30 and 60 years old. There were less than 40% that graduated from college or above. Young people (age ≦ 30) sought medical information through websites as often as they acquired from professionals (physicians or pharmacists), whereas participants, whose age were above 50, tended to ask professional advice (≥ 70%). The participants, who used nutritional supplements, were aged over 60 (≥ 71%). Interestingly, there was a positive correlation to their educational levels. Headaches, skin problems (including allergies) and insomnia were the medical problems most frequently acquired for self-care.
Based on the results of this study, community pharmacists can provide professional consultation when individuals ask for over-the-counters or nutritional supplements. Given that many people obtained information through websites, community pharmacies should be encouraged to build health care information to provide more appropriate medical information, which may elevate self-care capacities in the community.
