Project Proposal: Implementation of a Community-based Pharmacist-run Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Clinic in a College Health Center
Lauren Pohl, PharmD currently serves as the PGY1 Community Pharmacy Resident at Campus Health Pharmacy and UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Dr. Pohl graduated from the University of Mississippi School of Pharmacy.
Pharmacists are medication experts that can be utilized in college health centers to manage prevalent chronic conditions such as ADHD. Including pharmacists in an interprofessional clinic has the potential to ensure positive clinical outcomes for patients and to assist patients in thriving with ADHD while enrolled in college. Data from this study will help to evaluate clinic operations and may serve as a model for other pharmacist-run clinics in community-based or college health settings.
Her hope for this project is to show that pharmacists are equipped with the knowledge and expertise to manage ADHD and other comorbid psychiatric conditions. She hopes to share her model for pharmacist-physician collaboration so that other college health clinics and psychiatric clinics can successfully implement similar models.
"I am honored to receive this grant and thankful for the opportunity to provide exceptional patient care through the ADHD clinic at Campus Health."
