Abstract

Health development is executed with priority given to health promotion and disease prevention efforts beside the curative and health recovery efforts. The expected social behavior of "Healthy Indonesia 2010" is the proactive one to maintain and promote health, prevent risks for diseases, protect one from disease threats and active participate in healthy society movement. Maintaining and improving qualified, equal and accessible health services contain the meaning that one of the responsibilities of the health sector is to assure the availability of qualified, equal and accessible health services to the society. The implementation of health services is not merely in the hands of the government, but it also involves maximally the active participation of all members of the society and so pharmacist itself. The objective of this study examined factors that affect pharmacist's performance on health promotion and education services in community pharmacy. A cross-sectional study design utilizing questionnaires measuring previously validated constructs was used to examine the effect of factors on pharmacist's performance in community pharmacy in Surabaya. The 80 pharmacist's manager had participated to fulfill the questionnaires in this study. Overall, 72.5% of respondents reported that they likely had low performance in health promotion and education services. Statistically, leadership factor partially have a significant influence toward pharmacist's performance (p<0.05). And simultaneously the examined factors have a significant influence toward pharmacist's performance (p<0.05). The performance of pharmacist professional activities in health promotion and education services was very low. It means the pharmacists' role in health promotion and education to community seems abandoned. And It was influenced by leadership factor dominantly. Therefore providing advice on disease prevention, healthy lifestyle, nutrition and diet are emerging role for pharmacist. So, pharmacist as "long life learner" needs continuing education programs in order to advance their pharmaceutical care practices especially in community pharmacy.
