Project Proposal: A Pharmacist-Led, Evidence-Based Adherence Intervention Targeting Primary Medication Non-Adherence Among Four Chronic Disease States in One Regional Division of a Large Community Pharmacy Chain
Danya Horchi Wilson, PharmD, serves as the PGY1 Community Pharmacy Resident at Kroger Health and The University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Nashville, Tennessee.
The health care community focuses an enormous amount of time and resources on secondary adherence, while primary adherence has continuously been overlooked. Secondary adherence looks at whether or not a patient refills their medication on time, while primary adherence looks at whether or not a patient ever fills the prescription initially. With this research, I hope to capture the importance of primary medication adherence and find a more efficient way to capture patients that are at risk of primary medication non-adherence.
This research will hopefully add to the vast amount of literature proving pharmacists hold a vital role on the health care team. I am most excited to interact with patients and discover the impact of a pharmacist-led program on the patients in my local community. I am also excited to receive the grant because it allows me to receive a license to use the most up-to-date quality measures through the Pharmacy Quality Alliance in order to perform the most robust research possible.
