The Future of Pharmacy Expansion

The University of Toledo College of Pharmacy, a practitioner's school, is known for its century-long tradition of preparing pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists to care for patients and meet the demands of the industry.  The College of Pharmacy continues to build upon this legacy with "The Future of Pharmacy," a campaign that celebrates the innovations and progress of the college and situates the college as a leader in pharmacy education.

In Fall 2010, The College of Pharmacy will expand to the health science campus, taking a portion of its students and faculty to a state of the art new building. The new facility, in conjunction with Wolfe Hall, will accommodate the college’s growing student enrollment, which has increased from 800 to over 1,500 over the past eight years. 

Citywide Medication Therapy Review

 

For the second consecutive year, the UT College of Pharmacy, in conjunction with the American Heart Association and the Start! Toledo Heart Walk and 10K Run, is coordinating a citywide medication review in Toledo. This community project engages local pharmacists who volunteer their time to review patients’ medications as a way to promote better health. Because pharmacists are more likely to identify prescribing errors than any other health care providers, medication therapy reviews by pharmacists can save and improve lives.  Free vouchers are available at your local participating pharmacy and at the Start! Toledo Heart Walk on Saturday, May 22, 2010.

The Heart of the Matter

For patients in the Cardiac Rehabilitation program at The University of Toledo Medical Center, the support and care of a multidisciplinary team provide them with the tools they need to move forward into a healthier future.  The program, open to patients who have suffered cardiac events or heart problems, helps patients to get fit and improve their overall health.  According to the American Heart Journal article entitled “Clinical Evidence for a Health Benefit from Cardiac Rehabilitation,” patients participating in such programs experience “a 25-30% reduction in total and cardiovascular mortality” compared to patients who do not participate in cardiac rehab.
Dr. Amie Smith, pharmacy practice assistant professor, counsels patients about common cardiac medications including aspirin, warfarin and clopidogrel.

The Next Generation of Patient Care

The Pharmaceutical Care Outcomes Research (PCOR) lab in the Department of Pharmacy Practice at The University of Toledo College of Pharmacy is proving success with medication therapy management.  Medication therapy management (MTM), a group of services that optimize therapeutic outcomes for individual patients, is PCOR’s specialty.  They have worked with FrontPath, the City of Toledo, and Lucas County on projects that manage treatment for patients with diabetes, hypertension and hyperlipidemia.  With the support of PCOR, community pharmacists provide pharmaceutical care that allows patients to manage their diseases and improve the quality of their lives.
