Marshall School of Pharmacy professor publishes pediatric research

Dr. Chris Gillette, assistant professor of pharmacy practice, administration and research with the School of Pharmacy, is a member of several research teams that recently published papers on pediatric asthma management.

Gillette’s research was published in the International Journal of Pharmacy Practice, Clinical PediatricsJournal of Asthma and Pediatric Pulmonology, all  peer-reviewed journals.

His study published in the International Journal of Pharmacy Practice looked at how often children and parents of children with asthma who report problems with asthma medications asked about those medications during a routine medical visit.

The study published in Clinical Pediatrics focused on the frequency with which providers discussed written asthma action plans with children and their caregivers.  The study in the Journal of Asthma reviewed how often medical providers discussed peak flow meter use with children and their caregivers, and the research in Pediatric Pulmonology looked at how often medical providers discussed the side effects of asthma medications with children and their caregivers.

The collaborative projects involved researchers from the University of North Carolina’s medical and pharmacy schools as well as San Diego State University, Husson University and Indiana University, among others. Additional recent research publications by School of Pharmacy faculty members include:

  • Dr. H. Glenn Anderson, Jr.,  associate dean for academic and curricular affairs, “A Standardized Patient Counseling Rubric for a Pharmaceutical Care and Communications Course,” American Journal of Pharmaceutical Education.
