2023 Incentive Grant Recipient: Douglas Choi, PharmD
Project Proposal: Assessing the patient referral acceptance rate following community health screenings utilizing the layered learning model
Douglas Choi, PharmD currently serves as the PGY1 Community Pharmacy Resident with The Ohio State University and Kroger Health at Columbus, OH.
"The Ohio State University and Kroger health have always hosted healthcare screenings in the past. However, not much effort has been made in following up with patients who may have been identified as needing additional care. With this project, my research team will aim to follow up on targeted patients and track their progress of seeking additional care."
"I am most excited about following up with patients and tracking their progress on reaching out for additional medical care. There is little data about patients being followed up after participating in community screenings, which makes this project all the more exciting. This funding will help with providing the right resources and equipment for running the healthcare screenings and thus we can follow up with patients who are in need of additional follow up."
“I am both thrilled and honored to be one of this year’s APhA Foundation Grant recipients. I am excited to explore this opportunity of utilizing healthcare screenings and following up with targeted patients to ensure they can seek additional care if medically necessary.”
