Project Proposal: Sustainability and Benefits of Independent Community Pharmacy Long-Acting Injectable Antipsychotic Medication Services 

Alison Kingsbury, PharmD currently serves as the PGY1 University of Minnesota Pharmacy Resident at GuidePoint Pharmacy in Brainerd, Minnesota. She graduated from the University of Minnesota.

Living in rural Minnesota there is limited access to health care especially for those with mental illness. Recent law changes that expanded Minnesota pharmacists’ scope of practice created an opportunity to increase access to our patients.

Dr. Kingsbury hopes to measure the benefits that pharmacists bring to administration of long-acting injectable antipsychotics in the community.

"I’m excited to be able to expand pharmacists’ services in Minnesota. The project allows me to work at the top of my license as well as better care for my patients."
