To test the feasibility of implementation and integration of community pharmacist–led depression screening for patients with diabetes in an underserved rural area and to assess the response rate of prescribers to pharmacist-led depression screening and treatment recommendation.
A free mobile application (app), Know Your Numbers (KYN), was developed by student pharmacists to assist underserved community members to track their health numbers. The study objectives included creating a health app, implementing a pilot program, and analyzing the frequency of app use and perceptions of community members toward their health numbers, pharmacists, and health apps.
Suicide in the United States is a major preventable public health problem. Pharmacists need to be educated on suicide prevention strategies so that they can increase their own awareness and identify patients at-risk. A training program for pharmacists was used to provide skills necessary to recognize a crisis and the warning signs of suicide. The program's effect on the participant's general perception, self-efficacy, and attitude towards suicide prevention was examined.
