Abstract:

Objectives: Create an innovative patient-centered assignment on medication therapy management services (MTMS) to allow practicing pharmacists to learn current pharmacy topics through patient interaction. Methods: Non-traditional Doctor of Pharmacy students enrolled in a distance education program completed this assignment. Students were encouraged to listen to a recorded lecture and read selected articles on Medicare Part D, MTMS, and potential pharmacist reimbursement. Standardized data collection forms were developed to facilitate electronic submission. Assignment completion required performance of a comprehensive medication review for a patient and submission of the following: proof of National Provider Identification (NPI) number, patient’s medical history and current medications, medication action plan for identified problems, completed superbill for reimbursement, and letter to the patient’s primary care physician (PCP). Students were not required to communicate with the PCP or follow-up with the patient. Results: 26 students completed the assignment. A total of 275 medications (10.6 ± 4.1 / patient) were reviewed, and 121 potential medication-related problems (4.8 ± 2.0 / patient) were identified. Of the 121 problems, students resolved 20 (16.5%) during the medication review. An additional 42 of 73 (57.5%) problems were addressed by PCPs even though students were not required to send communication to the PCP. On assignment due date, some students were anticipating PCP feedback; many had scheduled follow-up appointments with their patients. Implications: Student participation exceeded stated requirements. Assignment will be adjusted based on feedback and utilized in subsequent years. In the future, this assignment may be used as an interactive continuing education program for pharmacists.
