2023 Incentive Grant Recipient: Emma Piehl, PharmD, RPh
Project Proposal: Evaluation of patient satisfaction with the implementation of a mobile pharmacist in a medication-assisted treatment clinic
Emma Piehl, PharmD, RPh currently serves as the PGY1 Community Pharmacy Resident with the University of Iowa College of Pharmacy at MercyOne Pharmacies in Dubuque, Iowa.
"My motivation for this project proposal was patient satisfaction. I’ve witnessed the stress of patients and pharmacy personnel on clinic days. I love the idea of a simple solution to a complex situation."
"I’m most excited to have a positive impact on the patients in the clinic. Having a centralized care program with all their healthcare personnel in one location will greatly impact their quality of care."
"I am honored to receive an APhA Foundation Incentive Grant this year and am excited for the opportunity to implement this new service for our patients and help in decreasing the stigma associated with addiction."
