Residents and their Preceptors
Project Proposal: Collaboration between a Community Pharmacy and Prescriber Practices to Address Primary Nonadherence
“I hope to highlight the importance of patient education and follow-up when initiating medication(s) for chronic conditions. Providing education about a new medication prior to pick-up, may help patients understand why their new medication is important and what they can expect during therapy.”
Shantel Houston, PharmD, currently serves as the PGY-1 Community Pharmacy Resident at Moose Pharmacy in Concord, NC.
Dr. Houston hopes to evaluate the change in primary nonadherence rates in patients prescribed new medications to treat type 2 diabetes, hypertension, or dyslipidemia following the implementation of a workflow process involving an independent community-based pharmacy and prescriber practices.
