The UNC Hospitals Neurology Clinic provides specialized care to patients with neuroimmunologic disease, neuromuscular disease, and stroke. The pharmacist-run clinic provides disease state management and coordination of specialty pharmacy medication needs. Pharmacist services are provided 4 to 5 days per week via a protocol-driven Clinical Pharmacist Practitioner agreement. At the conclusion of the rotation, residents are expected to demonstrate the ability to conduct an ambulatory care patient interview, assess safety and efficacy of disease modifying therapies (DMTs), assess and recommend safety monitoring, and perform specialty pharmacy activities. Residents will provide direct patient care during clinic visits, advise physicians and other providers regarding optimal medication therapy, and deliver educational resources to patients and providers.
