Pharmacy Agents for Change Fellowship RFA Available
June 26, 2007
The Jewish Healthcare Foundation (JHF) is requesting applications for the Pharmacy Agents for Change Fellowship Program. The program, funding for which was announced in April, is intended to support clinical pharmacists in hospitals and nursing homes in reducing preventable complications that sometimes arise when patients must take multiple medications.
Under the program, as many as six Southwestern Pennsylvania pharmacists will be supported with one-time grants of $15,000 to their host institutions. The pharmacists will undertake projects to expand and transform their roles as patient educators, therapeutic consultants and quality champions. All will undergo training in the Pittsburgh Regional Health Initiative's Toyota-based Perfecting Patient CareSM method of process improvement.
Applicants must submit letters of intent no later than July 23rd. Following a review, JHF will solicit full proposals, due Aug 31st.
