RESEARCH SUMMARY
As a clinical pharmacist practitioner, I am interested in chronic disease state management utilizing the collaborative management models of practice. I am also interested in the impact of low literacy on health related outcomes. Current research includes: predictors of time in therapeutic range for outpatients on warfarin, patient satisfaction with Medicare wellness visits provided by a Clinical Pharmacist Practitioner; design and implementation of medication protocols to substitute potentially inappropriate medications in an elderly population with safer therapies; evaluation of appropriate medication use in systolic heart failure patients; patient outcomes in a hospital follow-up clinic; and CQI initiatives in a primary care anticoagulation clinic.
