Abstract:

Objective. To improve the quality and quantity of experiential training sites by implementing disease state management (DSM) programs staffed year-round by students in advanced pharmacy practice experience (APPE) courses.
Design. Pharmacists in Colorado interested in developing DSM programs in hospitals, community health centers and community pharmacies were trained to offer their choice of program. Each pharmacy was equipped with “point-of-care” technology, guaranteed a year-round supply of APPE students to deliver patient care services under the trained pharmacists’ supervision, and links established with local prescribers. Patients, referred by physicians, are educated by the students in a series of lessons about their disease(s). The students establish, monitor, update and document patients’ pharmaceutical care plans; perform laboratory investigations; and liaise with the patients’ physicians under their preceptors’ supervision.
Evaluation. Nine DSM programs including oral anticoagulation, diabetes, dyslipidemia and hypertension offering 72 APPE rotations annually have been implemented in a 5-year span and three more are in development. Health outcomes data demonstrates that the students deliver patient care services under supervision which meets national standards of care.
Conclusion. Pharmacy-based DSM programs that rely on students to provide patient care services, and which meet national standards for patient care, have been established. A strategy to improve the quality and quantity of APPE training sites has been successfully implemented.
