Project Proposal: Measuring the Impact of an Insulin Education Tool in Assisting Pharmacy Technicians to Correctly Calculate Insulin Pen Prescriptions
“My hopes for this project are to provide useful education for pharmacy technicians to apply in their practice and to learn if this investigated algorithm can serve as a positively impactful tool for safe medication practice in the community pharmacy setting. ”
Chase Board, PharmD currently serves as the PGY1 Community Pharmacy Practice Resident at University of Mississippi School of Pharmacy located in Jackson, MS. Dr. Board hopes to identify the effectiveness of an educational tool in preventing calculation errors for dispensing prescriptions for insulin pens with pharmacy technicians.
“I would like to thank the University of Mississippi School of Pharmacy, my co-investigators, Dr. Joshua Fleming, Dr. Stuart Haines, and Dr. Scott Malinowski, as well as the APhA Foundation for the opportunity to make this project possible.”
