Rowe professor part of study about patient trust in community pharmacy
Professor James Barker, Herbert S. Lamb Chair in Business Education in the Rowe School of Business, is the Co-investigator on a successful, newly funded Nova Scotia Health Research Foundation Development/Innovative Grant entitled “Patient trust in community pharmacy: An exploration of the influence of patient trust on willingness to use expanded scope of practice services”.
The grant funds research that will investigate how patient trust influences decisions to use expanded pharmacy services in Nova Scotia. The grant is part of a larger investigation into how best (practically and safely) to implement expanded practices in Nova Scotia’s community pharmacies.
Besides Professor Barker, the research team includes scholars from St. Francis Xavier University, Dalhousie’s Schools of Pharmacy and Nursing, and the University of Cincinnati in the U.S. These scholars partner with provincial health regulators and pharmacists’ associations in a joint effort to improve pharmacy practices and services for Nova Scotia.
