Grant Docs CPF Synopsis | Report
Objectives In partnership with Donald Letendre, Dean of the University of Rhode Island College of Pharmacy and Lucinda Maine, Executive Vice President of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy, we will: 1.Design and develop a semester-long course 2.Pilot the course in at least two Colleges of Pharmacy 3.Obtain feedback on the course from recent graduates 4.Revise course content based on feedback 5.Publish results 6.Offer the refined program to all Colleges of Pharmacy at no charge The course will focus on those skills and processes that will help new Pharmacists manage their community practice environment, thereby enabling them to provide more direct patient care. Examples of the skills that will be taught during the course include: delegating for success-- resource utilization-- recruitment and interviewing-- root cause analysis-- lean methodology-- effective communications-- and professional advocacy. Course design includes community executives and experts as guest speakers to assure content is current and relative while increasing access to graduating students. Our goal is to help new pharmacists realize that it is not the sole responsibility of the employer to create an environment to provide a fulfilling career, but rather a partnership between the pharmacist and the employer. By providing students with these additional skills, we anticipate that as pharmacists, they will better understand their responsibilities, and will realize the benefits and take ownership in partnering with their employers to ensure a rewarding career for themselves. We are confident that this course will provide the skills needed to enable pharmacists to attain a fulfilling career that includes more direct patient care. We look forward to the opportunity to provide a detailed proposal for the foundations consideration.
