SWOSU College of Pharmacy Dean to lead United States on Joint Research Project
Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford has been funded for a two-year project that will compare/study the current state of clinical activities of pharmacy practitioners in Europe and the United States.
SWOSU College of Pharmacy Dean Dr. Doug Ried will serve as project leader for the United States and received the $140,000 grant that will start in October of this year. The grant was announced by the Education Audiovisual and Cultural Executive Agency.
The goals of the project are to serve as a baseline for change and harmonize the practice between the countries with the goal of extending/sharing these skills with other European countries and the international community. The project will present a document containing recommendations for a set of minimum clinical competencies that will serve as a starting point for the United States, Great Britain and the Republic of Ireland.
The EU project leader is Dr Laura Sahm, faculty member of pharmacy at the University College Cork (UCC), Ireland.
