Data for: PERSONALITY TRAITS AND PERSONAL VALUES AS RETAIL PHARMACY CHOICE PREDICTORS IN THE CONTEXT OF PHARMACEUTICAL CARE REQUIREMENTS. THE POLISH STUDY
The presented data refer to a study aimed to review the premise that a specific personality may be a predictor for the career choices made by pharmacy students that entail building a therapeutic relationship with the patient as part of practising PhC. The study was conducted in a group of 211 students at the Faculty of Pharmacy, Medical University in Lublin, aged 21 - 30 (M=23.17; SD=1.26). The reference group (n=83) was composed of respondents declaring preference for a professional path that implies direct contacts with the patient (mainly retail pharmacy at a commercial chemist’s). The control group was composed of students who declared preference for a professional path which does not entail direct contacts with patients. The study employed the Polish versions of the NEO-FFI Personality Inventory and the Schwartz Value Survey.
