Smart Advancements

Two new smartphone apps aim to lower patients’ health risk and raise students’ test scores.

A $93,000 gift from Google, together with a $25,000 award from Saint Louis University’s President’s Research Fund, will allow faculty at St. Louis College of Pharmacy, SLU and Harvard University to research smartphone and Web-based applications and data infrastructure to create an asthma alert messaging system. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 25.7 million Americans currently have asthma. One study indicates that the average cost for treating an acute asthma attack for one child is estimated at $945 for an ER visit and $8,490 for hospitalization.

Dr. Mark Gaynor, associate professor in the Department of Health Management and Policy at SLU, envisions this tool as an effective way to prevent asthma attacks before they happen, preserving health and saving time and money for patients and healthcare systems. The messaging system will give patients a tool to manage their individual asthma conditions by sending alerts when outdoor conditions have the potential to trigger asthma attacks. Members of the project team from the three institutions are collaborating to give asthma patients a way to track environmental conditions using Google Maps software.

“In areas such as St. Louis, which is one of the 10 worst cities in the U.S. for asthma, we see a very high admission rate to the emergency room for this chronic condition. This is a problem because it is filling up the ER with patients who really don’t need to be there,” Gaynor said.

In addition to Gaynor, one of the primary investigators for this study is Dr. Erica F. Pearce, assistant professor at St. Louis College of Pharmacy. She believes that the alert system will be useful in influencing patient behavior. Because patients will be able to update their electronic medical records within the program, they can play a more active role in preventing their own illnesses.

From Flash Cards to Fingertips

Two University of Kentucky (UK) College of Pharmacy faculty members designed an app to help students prepare for the national pharmacy board examination. Conceived by Dr. Frank Romanelli and Dr. Jeff J. Cain, the “NAPLEX Exam Prep” app functions as a flash card quiz. It allows students to test their knowledge on the types of questions they can expect to see on the NAPLEX—right on their mobile devices.

“This is part of our effort to meet students where they want to be met,” said Romanelli, associate dean for educational advancement at the UK College of Pharmacy. “Smartphones and tablets are as much a part of pharmacy education today as the mortar and pestle.” The NAPLEX Exam Prep app is available on Apple’s App Store for $19.95. The app will soon be available on Google Play, formerly known as the Android Market. Once users download the app, they can participate in a quiz anytime, anywhere. The questions were part of a mock NAPLEX exam created by Romanelli in an elective course he leads at the college.

“We wanted the app to be accessible and spontaneous,” said Cain, director of educational technology for the college. “We designed it so students could take a quick quiz whenever they had a few minutes to spare—while riding on a bus or during a lunch break, for instance.” The NAPLEX Exam Prep app is a product of clickblue, the college’s online educational platform that provides professional development offerings to pharmacists around the world.

Ready for Anything

Two University of Georgia faculty members not only educate students about disaster preparedness, but also practice what they preach.

“Many pharmacists don’t realize the importance of their role in making emergency treatment and prescriptions available in a disaster,” asserts Dr. Trina J. von Waldner, director of postgraduate continuing education at The University of Georgia (UGA) College of Pharmacy. She and Dr. Catherine A. White, associate professor of pharmaceutical and biomedical sciences, make it their business to teach future healthcare professionals about responding to disasters and emergencies, while serving as first-responders themselves.

Teach Beyond the Traditional

Von Waldner and White believe that pharmacists’ knowledge should go beyond traditional pharmacy education to include public health issues. Together, they have incorporated disaster training into The University of Georgia’s 2nd Year Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experience, as well as developed two electives for student pharmacists on emergency preparedness and public health.

One elective provides an introduction to public health by exploring epidemiology and infectious diseases, health behavior and promotion, health policy and management, and environmental health. In addition, the course addresses the roles of health professionals in disaster planning, preparedness, and response and recovery involving natural and man-made disasters. Von Waldner also includes a three-week introduction to public health in the first semester course, Introduction to Pharmacy, emphasizing the importance of public health principles and roles for pharmacists early in the curriculum.

“We have mass triage, first-aid and mass-dispensing exercises to prepare students to care for large populations that have been affected by natural or man-made disasters,” von Waldner said.

White became interested in natural and man-made mass casualty disaster response a decade ago, working with the College of Pharmacy’s Mass Destruction Defense program. She and von Waldner also participated in UGA’s National Preparedness Month with Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse, a program developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention designed to inform young adults of the importance of being prepared for any disaster.

Mission Critical

Von Waldner spent most of last November in New York—but not on holiday. She worked 12-to-16-hour days to help victims of Hurricane Sandy’s devastation as part of the Georgia-3 Disaster Medical Assistance Team. A DMAT is a group of professional and para-professional medical personnel under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services who provide rapid medical response to disaster sites.

She and her group supported two separate missions—manning a strike team in the Rockaways that assessed medical needs and worked with public health, emergency personnel and local pharmacists to provide medication access, and also providing medical care to evacuees with special needs, such as dialysis and mental health patients, at New York City medical shelters. Von Waldner has been a member of DMAT for two years.

“Since so many pharmacies occupy the ground floor of apartment buildings, flooding prevented patients from accessing their medications,” she explained. “Loss of power was another problem. Fortunately, we were able to set up a generator-powered mini-medical center inside a tent in a parking lot to fill emergency prescriptions for those with chronic illnesses.”

Hard to Predict

In all of their talks and lectures, von Waldner and White stress the need for everyone to be prepared in advance of emergencies, but sometimes Mother Nature has other plans. “We have to realize that disaster can strike at any time,” von Waldner added. “Tornadoes, hurricanes and severe storms are more prevalent in the warmer months, but ice storms and snow can also be devastating.”

They recommend that people know how to protect themselves, their families and their pets by developing evacuation and communication plans, and putting together an emergency kit that will provide water, food and emergency supplies for several days.

Von Waldner noted that no amount of training could have prepared her for the devastation she witnessed after Sandy—collapsed houses, downed power lines, upturned autos, contaminated water, loss of power and unmet medical needs. “Most of the people we encountered were so appreciative of the help,” said von Waldner. “They were so glad to know that someone was aware of their needs.”

A Run for the Red Cross

Hurricane Sandy may have stopped the official 2012 New York City Marathon, but it didn’t stop a father and daughter from running anyway. Dr. Terrence L. Schwinghammer, chair and professor of the Department of Clinical Pharmacy at West Virginia University, and Amanda Schwinghammer Cowen, coding specialist at Amphion Medical Solutions, completed 26.2 miles in the unofficial RunAnyway event, helping to raise money for the American Red Cross.

“Instead of a competitive race where runners tried to achieve a personal best finish time, the event became an international celebration of human determination, spirit and friendship,” Schwinghammer said. “The RunAnyway group helped raise $16,000 for a church and filled five Suburban SUVs with winter clothing donations.”

More than 1,800 runners from Canada, Mexico, Germany, Italy and other countries participated in the November event, according to Schwinghammer. “When those international runners left for home, I don’t think they felt cheated because they didn’t get a finisher’s medal,” he said. “Instead, they left knowing they had been part of a very special experience that will likely never happen again.”

Exemplary Achievements on Display

In addition to sharing ideas with colleagues, the AACP Annual Meeting is an opportunity to recognize excellence in academic pharmacy. AACP President J. Lyle Bootman, Ph.D., will present the prestigious Robert K. Chalmers Distinguished Pharmacy Educator Award and Lawrence C. Weaver Transformative Community Service Award during the Opening General Session on Sunday, July 14. New this year, the Paul R. Dawson Biotechnology Award and Volwiler Research Achievement Award will be recognized at the Science Plenary on Monday, July 15. Finally, during the Examining Excellence Awards Plenary on Tuesday, July 16, Dr. JoLaine R. Draugalis, AACP past president and dean of The University of Oklahoma College of Pharmacy, will lead an open dialogue between the award recipients. They’ll share their personal career paths, how they achieved greatness in their work, and what qualities mark excellence in pharmacy education, research and service.

Receiving the award for the best paper published in the American Journal of Pharmaceutical Education in 2013 is a team of faculty members representing two universities. The Rufus A. Lyman Award will be presented at the Closing Banquet on Tuesday, July 16, when the Association celebrates its collective accomplishments during the past year.

In a collaborative effort between faculty members from The University of Rhode Island and Brown University, researchers set out to evaluate how students from the pharmacy and nursing programs at URI and medical students from the Warren Alpert Medical School at Brown work together to diagnose and treat patients. To do so, they developed a workshop, combining second-year medical students, fourth-year nursing students and third-year student pharmacists to work as an interdisciplinary team to solve various patient cases. The introductory interprofessional experience had a positive impact on the students’ understanding of collaboration and teamwork, and helped students foster future collaborations as healthcare providers.

Over the course of her 26-year career, Dr. Mary Lynn McPherson has amassed an accomplished teaching portfolio and a highly-regarded reputation among Maryland’s students and faculty. She has led the development and/or redesign of many courses in the school’s curriculum, using cutting-edge instructional methods to effectively teach courses such as Self-Care and Nonprescription Pharmacotherapy and Care of the Terminally Ill. She has served as the course manager for more than 20 classes.

McPherson is considered an international authority in the fields of pain management and palliative care. Among her accomplishments in this area of expertise is the development of online training programs in pain management for physicians and nurses, as well as a critical thinking process for appropriate drug use in end-of-life patients that is used by numerous pharmacy and medical practitioners.

Dr. Alexander S. Mankin has been at the forefront of the UIC College of Pharmacy’s efforts to advance biotechnology at the graduate and professional levels. As the associate director, and then the director of the Center for Pharmaceutical Biotechnology, he helped to establish a formal specialization in pharmaceutical biotechnology within the pharmacognosy graduate program and has served as coordinator of this track for more than 15 years. Under his direction, the track flourished and developed into an important venue for graduate education at the college. Nearly all of the graduates from the biotechnology track are currently pursuing careers in pharmaceutical industry and in academia.

Mankin is an outstanding scientist whose work has provided new approaches for drug discovery. His research in two major areas—the mechanisms of action for ribosome-targeted antibiotics and the fundamental mechanisms of protein synthesis—led to understanding of the mechanisms of action of several important antibiotics and developing new ways for discovery of novel antibiotics.

Dr. Gunda I. Georg is director of the Institute for Therapeutics Discovery and Development at the University of Minnesota and holds the Robert Vince Endowed Chair in Medicinal Chemistry and the McKnight Presidential Chair. Highly regarded for her research on discovering and developing potential drugs to treat cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, and the development of male contraceptive agents, Georg’s research focuses on analyzing chemical compounds to find drugs that could potentially be useful for treatment.

Georg is one of only a few academic medicinal chemists who currently have therapeutically useful drugs on the market. Luserda™, of which she is a co-inventor, is a prodrug of the general anesthetic propofol. Minnelide is an anti-cancer agent that is moving toward clinical trials at the University of Minnesota and shows strong anti-tumor activity, including activity in some pancreatic cancer models. Georg is a world-renowned scientist and an equally talented educator. Her research has been funded by many NIH grants, both to her as a PI and to projects in which she has participated, as well as by other sources of funding.

The Community Classroom

Four student-led community engagement projects and one college of pharmacy will be honored for their extraordinary commitment to community service during the 2013 Annual Meeting. Immediate Past President Brian L. Crabtree, Pharm.D., will present the 2012–13 Student Community Engaged Service Awards, sponsored by Teva Pharmaceuticals, to student groups from the University of Hawaii at Hilo, Midwestern University, Butler University and the University of Houston at a special session on July 16.

The University of Minnesota College of Pharmacy will receive the 2012–13 Lawrence C. Weaver Transformative Community Service Award during the Opening General Session on Sunday, July 14. This award honors a college or school of pharmacy demonstrating a major institutional commitment to addressing unmet community needs through education, practice and research. Academic Pharmacy Now highlights the incredible work and dedication to community service on behalf of the University of Minnesota College of Pharmacy and the four student-led groups.

The University of Minnesota College of Pharmacy is continuously aware of new opportunities to develop its community partnerships. Programs such as the Duluth campus’ Health of People Everywhere (HOPE) Clinic, a year-round free triage/referral clinic, provide patient care and entry into the healthcare system for adults from underserved populations, while exposing student pharmacists to valuable professional experiences. The clinic operates two hours every Tuesday afternoon, at a local homeless shelter and community center in downtown Duluth. More than 50 first-, second- and third-year student pharmacists, as well as 30 first- and second-year student physicians, participate in the clinic each year. Since openings its doors, the HOPE Clinic has served over 300 individual patients.

Similarly, student health professionals from the Twin Cities campus run the Phillips Neighborhood Clinic, serving patients from the economically-disadvantaged immigrant population in east Minneapolis through various steps of care and counseling about their medications. Open two nights a week, students at the PNC monitor patient intake, run the dispensary for a limited formulary of prescription medications, and counsel patients about their medications. Using an interprofessional approach, students from the fields of pharmacy, medicine, physical therapy, nursing, nutrition, social work and public health combine their skills to find the best care for patients. Their work was recognized in 2009 when they received the AACP Student Community Engaged Service Award.

University of Hawaii at Hilo Daniel K. Inouye College of Pharmacy

In the spirit of service and commitment to the Pacific region, the University of Hawaii at Hilo Daniel K. Inouye College of Pharmacy created the Pacific Islander Mobile Screening Clinic. Actively applying lessons from the classroom, student pharmacists seek to improve public health and access to healthcare by providing education and wellness screenings to the Island’s underserved, multi-lingual, low-literacy Micronesian immigrant population. The clinic’s goals are to increase awareness of diabetes, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure; identify members of the community at risk for these conditions; provide wellness and lifestyle counseling; and provide referrals to accessible healthcare services offered at reasonable costs.

Health professional students of Pacific Islander background were recruited into the effort, as well as local high school students with multilingual skills to act as translators. The program hopes to spark interest in pharmacy careers among young adults.

Midwestern University’s Chicago College of Pharmacy

The Asian Community Health Education Initiative (ACHEI), a collaboration between Midwestern University’s Asian Health Association and the Midwest Asian Health Association, provides Chicago’s underserved Chinatown neighborhood with quality healthcare. Offering monthly screening events and laboratory consultation- and education-visits, ACHEI uses student pharmacists of Asian backgrounds to assist in diagnosing and translating medical information for residents. After screening events, results are mailed to residents who are invited back for more thorough explanations.

Being able to provide these services in a patient’s native tongue has made the ACHEI a comfortable and reliable healthcare resource for the community. The cultural connection allows for the most effective care, as patients are more willing to be open and the healthcare team can provide the best culturally-appropriate practices and information.

Butler University College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences

The Butler University Community Outreach Pharmacy program aims to provide quality healthcare to the underserved in the near eastside community of Indianapolis. Every Saturday morning, a local church provides space for BUCOP’s clinic and pharmacy to provide free medication therapy management to the community. Staffed by students, the clinic and pharmacy assesses and counsels patients on everything from making healthier lifestyle choices to finding locations for inexpensive, necessary medications.

Over three years, the program has received positive testimonial feedback and grown significantly—filling an average of eight prescriptions for 11 patients a week during its first month, to filling 1,750 prescriptions and serving 5,750 patients in the first half of 2012. BUCOP’s expanded influence has allowed it to pursue more general initiatives for its patients, such as smoking cessation programs and campaigns for health-benefitting lifestyle changes.

University of Houston College of Pharmacy

The Houston Outreach Medicine Education and Social Services Clinic seeks to reduce health disparities by addressing the healthcare needs of Houston’s homeless population. Providing the thoroughness of a primary care visit, the H.O.M.E.S. Clinic offers care from all health sectors, integrating student pharmacists with medical, public health and social work students to meet the needs of the underserved community. Overseen by Healthcare for the Homeless, the clinic helps patients overcome every obstacle between themselves and quality care.

The H.O.M.E.S. Clinic has four examination rooms, a pharmacy, multiple conference and office rooms, and serves six to eight patients each Sunday. This is meant to ensure thorough care, giving each patient quality time and extensive treatment. Students train for their roles alongside a peer manager before graduating to a more primary position after four outings.
