Pharmacy Future Leaders - Kellyn Moran - Pharmacy Podcast Episode 367

#PharmacyFutureLeaders

Industry Fellowship

Guest: Kellyn Moran (email: moran3@uic.edu)

2015-2017 UIC Medication Adherence Fellow

 

 

Today we're going to be talking with Kellyn Moran, the 2015-2017 Medication Adherence Fellow sponsored by the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) and Takeda (Tuh Kay Duh) Pharmaceuticals. She earned her Doctor of Pharmacy degree in 2015 from the UIC College of Pharmacy. Throughout pharmacy school, Dr. Moran conducted qualitative research in patient safety at the UIC Department of Medical Education housed within the school of medicine.

She also contributed to community-based practice research aimed at improving the quality of care for vulnerable populations. Dr. Moran is interested in using outcomes research to improve medication adherence. Her current research interests include quality of care, pharmacy program evaluation and economic modeling.

  1. Everyone’s leadership road is different, let’s start with where you are today, and how you got into your current position. 

1b. A lot of the dissatisfaction with some pharmacy jobs is the lack of being able to see progress, and through health outcomes research, it sounds like you can see how these patient populations progress.  

  1. How did you fit the aspects of choosing, applying for and visiting potential fellowships in your P4 year? Why did you choose UIC?
  1. How do you feel you became a leader/innovator and how did the opportunities you had there helped you. 
  1. What exactly does a fellow do in their first year and their second year? How does that transition to a PhD? 
  1. How is industry different than retail and hospital preparation, I know it’s a different world, but can you help describe that?
  1. I went to Maryland an urban campus and you are in downtown Chicago, tell us a little about what it’s like to be in an urban center and the opportunities it affords.
  1. Students know where to go in looking for community or hospital residencies, but where do you look for industry fellowships? 
  1. What does it mean to be a researcher, I understand the concept in a broad sense, but what experience do you need in professional school to move that title forward? 
  1. What blanket advice would you have for new graduates?

The Compliance Packaging Advantage - Pharmacy Podcast Episode 366

Pharmacy Podcast co-host and President of GRX Marketing interviews pharmacy owner Eric Pusey, R.Ph., CDE, with Medicap Pharmacy in Olyphant, Pennsylvania and current president of the Pennsylvania Pharmacist Association.

What is compliance packaging? Pharmacies across the nation now have another option to offer their medication management patients with medication compliance packaging, whereby a patient’s medications are blister-packed into cards or another packaged system organized by time-of-day and day-of-week.

The pharmacy staff organizes all the medications for your a patient's convenience. A multi-dose packaging system makes everything simpler for patients. Sorted and packaged by a staff member or pharmacist, each dose is personalized for that specific patient and they’re clearly labeled by date and time of day, giving the patient comfort of knowing they took the right medication at the right time.  No more guesswork, and no more bottles or pillboxes.

For more information on marketing Compliance Packaging to your patients contact GRX Marketing: http://www.grxmarketing.com/grx-news.html

Today's guest was Mr. Eric Pusey, R.Ph., CDE

5 Roads into Loving Your Retail Pharmacy Career PART 5 - Pharmacy Podcast Episode 364

5 Roads into Loving Your Retail Pharmacy Career PART 5 

Special Guest Ron Snow, Manager, Professional & College Relations CVS Health 

The FINAL CHAPTER in the series, PART 5: 

Play nice with others – This is a combo of all the 4 previous steps, but ask yourself how you and your pharmacy business can play nicely with others. Is there a visiting nurse service you could partner with in the community? Is there a way you could organize a community task force for disaster relief if, God forbid, something happens to your community?

What about a tox away day? Can you set up a phone tree with other pharmacists to prevent theft and diversion in pharmacy? What can you do with strong non profits in your area that would help the community? Can you bring the community IN to your pharmacy to hang out and be a spot of joy and hope for your neighborhood, instead of another icky task they have to check off of their list? Ask yourself one more time what your strengths are, and how you can add them to your world around you to create a better retail pharmacy world. Maybe that’s through a broader, interprofessional pathway that could lead you to feeling FANTASTIC about your career of pharmacy.

After all, you picked a great profession! The sky is the limit….!
