Summary: To ascertain how pharmacy students and pharmacy staff respond to a childhood fever scenario. Data were collected from 65 second year students and 51 fourth (final) year students in an OTC fever scenario. Data from pharmacy staff were collected via mystery shopping conducted over nine weeks between March and October 2015. Second year students performed well, achieving a median questioning score of 100%. Conversely, pharmacy staff scored 22%. A large proportion of the fourth year students and pharmacy staff achieved appropriate outcomes (92% and 65%, respectively).
