Through pharmacy research, we’re studying best practices when it comes to using medication. Every day, with every study, we work to answer questions like:
- What’s the best medication or combination to treat this condition?
- What should the pharmacist’s role be in a specific patient care scenario?
- How can the pharmacy department better partner with other healthcare members to offer patients the highest level of care?
- What regulations or protocols need to exist around the administration of this drug?
Cone Health has a long-standing history of pharmacy involvement with research, and in 2018 developed an official committee to help give this important arm of research even more focus and dedicated resources. The committee coordinates pharmacy department-led research projects, facilitates research training for pharmacy investigators, reviews research proposals, supports success of each project by providing feedback and guidance and monitors compliance with institutional review board.
