Project Proposal: Impact of opioid workflow on patient access to naloxone and morphine milliequivalents (MME) prescribing trends
Caitlin Brown, PharmD currently serves as the PGY1 Community Pharmacy Resident at Idaho State University located in Pocatello, ID. She graduated from the Samford University McWhorter School of Pharmacy.
Dr. Brown hopes to evaluate a newly implemented opioid workflow within a community pharmacy and its effect on at-home naloxone access and any correlation with patient’s morphine milligram equivalents. She also hopes to assess pharmacy employee knowledge of naloxone, perception of the workflow, and confidence in patient engagement.
Shaver’s had recently implemented an opioid workflow that involved the entire staff and seemed to be making a difference in their patient population. She wanted to see how the staff felt about the workflow and if we could measure the impact on patients.
"I am incredibly honored to receive this grant and thankful for the opportunity to conduct research at an independent pharmacy that has spear-headed enhanced clinical services in community pharmacies in Idaho."
