dc.description.abstractObjectives: (1) To assess the access to and quality of primary care for patients living with a psychiatric condition(s). (2) To identify demographic factors that may influence the access and quality of primary care services. Methods: Subjects were recruited at HOPE Inc., a behavioral health resource center, in Tucson, Arizona, during pharmacy student-run health fairs. Participants were surveyed using the Primary Care Assessment Tool (PCAT) a questionnaire developed by Johns Hopkins, which assess four domains of primary care. Participants were also surveyed about demographics, mental health diagnosis and their SMI designation. For objective (1): Descriptive statistics for each domain of the PCAT were performed to assess the level of access and quality of care, including comparison to a hypothesized score. For objective (2): Due to the small sample size only descriptive analysis of the demographic data was performed. Results: A total of 11 subjects were surveyed using the PCAT with an average score of 67.64±12.18. This was higher than the hypothesized score of 46. On average, in all four PCAT domains participants scored higher than the hypothesized, value. The lowest scoring domains were, “Care at first contact - Access” and “Coordination of care” (10.45±3.62, Hypothesized score: 8) and (12.36±5.82, Hypothesized score: 10) respectively. The highest scoring domain was “Care at first contact - utilization” (11.09±1.92, Hypothesized score: 12). Conclusions: This study helped to provide a framework for future studies of primary care services using the PCAT survey.
