2022 Incentive Grant Recipient: Kelsey Dunkin, PharmD, MBA
Project Proposal: Evaluating the impact of a Flip the Pharmacy Advanced Practice Experience on student knowledge of the Flip the Pharmacy Program and their perceptions of community pharmacy
Kelsey Dunkin, PharmD, MBA currently serves as the PGY1 Community Pharmacy Resident at Mathes Pharmacy Diabetes Center in New Albany, IN. She is a graduate of Sullivan University College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences
“I am excited and thankful to have been chosen as a recipient for an APhA Foundations Incentive Grant this year! I am very passionate about advancing community pharmacy and expanding the services that we as pharmacists can provide to our patients.”
Purdue University College of Pharmacy has worked alongside Team Indiana of the Flip the Pharmacy (FtP) program to develop a novel Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience (APPE). During this APPE, students work in an administrative role to promote practice transformation by helping independent community pharmacies incorporate advanced patient care services into their normal workflow. The motivation behind this project is to assess the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and confidence gained by the students to be able to initiate practice transformation.
"This grant will allow me to investigate how we can better prepare students during their final year of pharmacy school to develop, implement, and sustain advanced patient care services in their future practice sites. The field of pharmacy is continuously progressing, requiring students to have training and experiences that will allow them to thrive in a competitive field."
