Dr. Young's expertise in the behavioral sciences underpins his work in four main areas: consumer/patient behavior in the medications use process, marketing and health outcomes research, health communication, and health services research. Dr. Young's more specific research and teaching interests address: 1) psychological theoretical/foundations of research on the patient's role in health care and drug use, 2) social, economic, and political issues related to U.S. health care system (in general) and profession of pharmacy (in particular), dynamics of drug use process, illness behavior, and health care utilization, 3) prescribing and medication use processes from perspectives of health professionals (e.g., sources of professional information decision making, assessment of quality), 4) the pharmaceutical industry, public policy, prescription drug products, pricing, promotion, and distribution, and 5) adapting techniques from the social sciences for research in the field of social and administrative pharmacy.
Dr. Young is currently collaborating with researchers at Marshfield clinic on a study of underserved rural asthma patients. Using a telepharmacy-based intervention, the goal of the project is to improve prescribed medication use and asthma management.
