Casey Gallimore, PharmD, MS

Co-Director of Interprofessional Education (IPE) for the School of Pharmacy

My scholarship is informed by type 2 translational research which asks the question of how to successfully make improvements in real-world settings. It focuses on what is being done in actual practice and educational settings, the associated outcomes, and what interventions could feasibly be made to improve those outcomes. Traditionally the phrase “type 2 translational research” has been used to describe improvement efforts in clinical practice and community health programs, but I believe it can also be applied to the evaluation and advancement of educational practices. For this reason my scholarship is closely intertwined with both my teaching and clinic practice efforts.

William T. Evjue is one of the Access Community Health Care Center (Access) clinic sites. As a federally qualified health center (FQHC), Access receives federal funding to provide comprehensive primary care and preventive care to underserved patient populations in the Madison area. At Access I work in a team-based role alongside primary care and behavioral health providers. Specifically I collaborate with the integrated behavioral health care team to provide medication management for patients with complex physical and mental health needs. I also contribute to population-based health initiatives at Access through management of a registry of patients prescribed psychotropic medications requiring extensive safety and efficacy monitoring. Within these roles I provide recommendations related to medication dosing, adjusting ineffective medication regimens, identifying and managing medication interactions and monitoring medications. Much of my time in practice is also dedicated to serving as a drug information resource for patients taking psychotropic medications and the providers responsible for prescribing and monitoring these medications.
