Dr. Mount received her BS degree (1979) in pharmacy, and her MS (1982) and PhD (1985) degrees in sociology, all from Purdue University. As a registered pharmacist, she has practiced pharmacy in a variety of hospital and community settings. She is active in numerous professional organizations. Professor Mount joined the UW-Madison faculty in 1985.
Dr. Mount's current research interests focus on two general areas: the effects of organizational and professional characteristics on the process of health service delivery, and the social organization of pharmacy and the pharmacy profession in the United States.
Processes of Service Delivery: In this area, Dr. Mount has been interested in looking at how health and social service organizations and their professional staff members address the needs of their patients or
clients. She has had a particular interest in services for the aged population. She has studied how
a community-based network of health and social service agencies interacts to provide integrated services to the aged persons in a community. Her research has focused on the structure of administrative and
service-related inter-organizational relationships and how the structure influences coordination of services.
Another research project of Dr. Mount's has analyzed the role of the consultant pharmacist in long-term
care. More specifically, it focused on the nature and effects of consultant pharmacists' interactions with
other health professionals (e.g., physicians, nurses, medical social workers), nursing home residents and
Dr. Mount has also been involved in an NIMH-funded multi disciplinary study of the organization and provision of services to the severely mentally ill. The study analyzes patterns of mental health service
provision in several rural Wisconsin counties.
Social Organization of Pharmacy: In this area, Dr. Mount has been interested in studying the organization and activities of professional and trade associations, the process of pharmaceutical policy-making, development of leadership within the profession, and the overall process of professionalization within the pharmacy.
