Adult Pulmonary/Cystic Fibrosis Clinic

Rotation Description:

UNC Pulmonary Specialty Clinic at Eastowne serves patients with cystic fibrosis, non-CF bronchiectasis, asthma/COPD, and other general & specialty pulmonary diseases. The pharmacist practice is focused on the care of adult CF, non-CF bronchiectasis, and general pulmonary patients. Adult CF Clinic is staffed by pulmonary fellows, attending physicians, and a mid-level provider.

As an integral member of the pulmonary clinic team, the pharmacist is responsible for ensuring that patients utilize medications safely and effectively. This includes, yet is not limited to, active participation in patient case discussions, collaboration with the medical team, review of labs for patients on outpatient IV antibiotics, patient education, patient medication and insurance issue resolution, and education of physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, medical and pharmacy students. The pharmacist has an active role on the CF interdisciplinary care team to provide consult services during and outside of clinic days. During CF clinic days, the pharmacist provides medication reconciliation through annual reviews, counseling, monitoring, and management of CF-related manifestations.

The resident will gain experience primarily in seeing cystic fibrosis patients in clinic for annual medication review and evaluation of adherence, barriers to medication access, education, and the management of the many facets of CF disease manifestations. The resident will be expected to answer drug consult questions from providers and ancillary staff and follow up on lab results for patients on outpatient IV antibiotics. The resident can expect to be highly involved with the CF interdisciplinary team.
