Abstract

ESCP 7th spring conference on clinical pharmacy, tackling inequalities in the delivery of pharmaceutical care, 16-19 May 2007, Edinburgh, UK. Cancer prevention [1, 2] information ''Actively Preventing Cancer'' (APC) is provided by a Glasgow Pharmacy Public Health Project by website and touch screen information (TSI) points in a community pharmacy and health centres, targeted at deprived communities with lower than average life expectancy. Data reported here are from the second year of a two-year evaluation. First-year results were reported previously [3]. To assess new users' perceptions of usability and satisfaction with content, and to assess impact on lifestyle among those who had either used APC at least 3 months or at least 1 year previously.
