Research projects

Project I: Impact of a Pharmacist-Only versus a Pharmacist-Led Multidisciplinary Clinic on Smoking Cessation Rates in a Homeless Population

This study examined the effectiveness of pharmacist-only tobacco cessation education compared with a pharmacist-led multidisciplinary approach to tobacco cessation, in a homeless population, in regards to the rate of follow-up with a smoking cessation program. The secondary objective will assess the perception of multidisciplinary experiences prior to and after participation in the smoking cessation clinic.  

Project II: Pharmacy Student Perceptions of Community Pharmacy Practice

This study is part of a multi-institutional project to evaluate student perceptions of community pharmacy practice.
