We work as an interdisciplinary team.
Research conducted by the Geriatric Pharmacotherapy Program faculty is focused in the following areas:
Results from the program’s research will help pharmacists recommend drug therapy and identify areas where pharmacists contribute to positive clinical outcomes in older patients. The geriatrics program uses a team approach and collaborates with pharmacists and practitioners from other healthcare disciplines to conduct patient-focused research.
