IPA Foundation Awards Outcomes Innovative Pharmacy Grants

The IPA Foundation has awarded Outcomes Innovative Pharmacy Grants to two projects for the 2019 grant cycle. 
Through the Outcomes Innovative Pharmacy Grant program, the Iowa Pharmacy Association Foundation seeks to support innovative pharmacy practice initiatives in Iowa. The foundation awarded $20,000 between these two projects: 
“Community Pharmacist Use of Mobile ECG to Inform Drug Therapy Decision Making for Patients Receiving QT Prolonging Medications” submitted by Jim Hoehns, PharmD, BCPS, FCCP, from Northeast Iowa Family Practice Center
“Initiation of Pharmacy Services in a Rural Health Clinic” submitted by Naomi Graves, PharmD, from Hawarden Regional Healthcare Clinic
Each recipient will be required to present a poster on their project at the 2020 IPA Annual Meeting and the summaries will be published in a subsequent issue of the Journal of the Iowa Pharmacy Association.
The grant program stems from the Outcomes Innovative Pharmacy Endowment that was established by the original investors of OutcomesMTM, a medication therapy management, or MTM, service provider based in Iowa. In 1999, the Iowa Pharmacy Association provided seed money to support this innovative startup, which became a national leader in MTM services. Following the purchase of OutcomesMTM by Cardinal Health in 2015, the endowment was created as a way for those original investors to give back to the pharmacy profession and keep the innovative spirit and legacy of the company and Iowa pharmacy alive.
Applicants must be an Iowa-licensed pharmacist or an Iowa-based researcher working with Iowa pharmacists in an innovative pharmacy practice. Applicants must also be active members of the Iowa Pharmacy Association. The application deadline for the next grant cycle is Dec. 1, 2019.
