Nathaniel M. Rickles, Pharm.D., Ph.D., BCPP Selected for PCORI Pipeline to Proposal Award

Nathaniel M. Rickles, Pharm.D., Ph.D., BCPP was recently selected for a PCORI Pipeline to Proposal Award to help build the community and capacity necessary to later develop a patient-centered comparative effectiveness research project across New England. He will be collaborating on the first stage of the PCORI project, “Tailoring Patient Options for Medication Adherence Action Plans in Community Pharmacies,”with the Massachusetts Pharmacists Association and Pro-Cure Health Design. The long-term objective is to determine the value of community pharmacists tailoring adherence interventions options, over the current standardized intervention approach. Dr. Rickles sees this as, “only the beginning of what we hope to be a national model for engaging community pharmacies in the critical work of improving patient comfort with their medications.” For more information, please contact Dr. Rickles at [email protected], or Peaches Udoma at [email protected]
