SDPharmNet Description: San Diego Pharmacist Resource and Research Network is a practice-based research network in San Diego,California. Pharmacist members engage in practice and research projects that seek to identify and solve problems commonly encountered in their practices. The UCSD Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences provides methodological expertise needed to complete the projects.
Mission: The mission of the network is to provide pharmacists with information and practice tools to improve quality and safety of medication use through collaborative, practice-based research.
Resources: Resources available to members include best practices for medication therapy management generated from research projects, research training, and assistance with collaborative practice and quality improvements.
Research: Network members collaborate with academic researchers to address challenges in practice. The projects are designed to maximize the gathering of data and to avoid disruption of patient services. Research results are disseminated to participating pharmacists as rapidly as possible.Our goal is to generate new knowledge through research and translate research into practice.
