My research interests are pedagogically and clinically-oriented. Within an academic setting, I am most interested in evaluating the cultural influences on pharmacy student clinical and social behaviors. My didactic and experiential students are a diverse representation of a new generation of learners in pharmacy education. My investigations will aim to focus on students’ prior experiences and how those events correspondingly influence behaviors and attitudes both within and outside the pharmacy classroom.
My clinical research is focused on medication reconciliation efforts in alternative transitions of care models. Pharmacist integration into transitions of care and medication reconciliation are well-published; however, there is less evidence describing the opportunities and outcomes associated with these services in non-traditional environments (e.g. pulmonary rehabilitation and bariatric surgery). My goals are to not only describe how pharmacy services are integrated into those settings, but also their impact on patient-centered care.
