Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a substantial public health problem. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recently updated guidelines to recommend IPV screening for all women of childbearing age. Expansion of screening efforts to the community pharmacy setting could provide an opportunity to substantially impact the health of consumers. To date, no research has explored consumers' perspective on IPV screening in the community pharmacy environment. To address this gap, a descriptive survey research study was conducted to examine female consumers' attitudes and preferences for IPV screening in community pharmacies. Female pharmacy customers (N = 60) completed an online survey assessing knowledge of and attitudes about community pharmacies as sources of health care advice, beliefs about IPV and IPV screening, and perspectives on IPV screening in the community pharmacy environment. Consumers who utilized pharmacies with more patient care services were more likely to report interest in IPV screening in the pharmacy environment. The majority of respondents thought IPV screening is an important thing to do (85.0%), and 33.3% agreed that it should happen in a pharmacy. A statistically significant relationship between the belief that the pharmacy is a good place for health education and preference for IPV screening in the community pharmacy environment was found, r(58) =.43, p <.001. Concern regarding the time required to conduct screenings and about the availability of appropriate space were identified as potential barriers to screening in the pharmacy environment.
