Pharmacy Future Leaders - Elisha Andreas - Pharmacy Podcast Episode 369

#PharmacyFutureLeaders

Travel Vaccines

Guest: Elisha Andreas (email: Elisha.Andreas@gmail.com)

Community Pharmacy Practice Resident

Elisha comments: “A true Iowa City native through and through. I am a 2016 graduate of the University of Iowa, College of Pharmacy and the Current PGY-1 Community Resident. My practice site is at the Hy-Vee DrugStore Pharmacy in Iowa City, IA where I spend my time in direct patient care activities such as travel clinic, enhanced patient counseling, smoking cessation and diabetes education, MTM, and immunizations. Community pharmacy has been a passion of mine since I was first exposed as a technician nearly 8 years ago. I thrive on direct patient education and building trusting patient-provider relationships. Outside of pharmacy, I enjoy exploring new restaurants with family and friends, as well as spending time with my dog, Samson.”

  1. Everyone’s leadership road is different, let’s start with where you are today, and how you got into your current position.
  1. How did you fit the aspects of choosing, applying for and visiting potential residency sites in your P4 year? Why did you choose Iowa and Iowa City community pharmacy residency specifically for your residency? 
  1. How do you feel you became a leader/innovator at the University of Iowa and how the opportunities you had there helped you.
  1. What exactly is a travel clinic? What did you / residency site preceptor have to do to get approval for this clinic? How is it going? 
  1. What other clinical activities are you doing at HyVee? How can other pharmacists / pharmacies learn from what you are doing? e.g., biometric screenings, immunizations, MTM, diabetes
  1. How does HyVee's central fill take off some of the dispensing role so that you can expand these services? What is it about HyVee that makes it a good place to perform these services (they invested in a resident, but besides that, does employee owned affect the way things go?) 
  1. How does working within a multiple site residency program develop your skills and ability to provide these services?  What would you recommend students look for who are thinking about residency?
  1. How does being so close to a research-intensive College of Pharmacy open opportunities for you and the travel clinic?
  1. Are you doing the PEPPR program and how is that going? How do you interact with other residents in the program?

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
