Michelle A Chui, PharmD, PhD
Hammel-Sanders Distinguished Chair in Pharmacy Administration Director of Graduate Studies, Health Services Research in Pharmacy Graduate Program
Dr. Chui's research centers on applying human factors approaches and utilizing a systems perspective to studying and characterizing community pharmacy practice and its practitioners. Specifically she would like to partner with community pharmacists to understand processes that impact medication safety and quality of care, so that interventions can be developed and tested that would allow pharmacists to provide effective and efficient medication management. She is funded on a number of projects including a feasibility project to explore handoff (shift change) communication between pharmacists, an evaluation comparing pharmacist-patient communication at the community pharmacy walk-in and drive-through windows, and a study measuring community pharmacy workload using a multi-dimensional human factors model.
Dr. Chui received her BA in Biological Sciences, her PharmD from Creighton University in Omaha, NE, and her MS and PhD in Pharmacy Administration from Purdue University in West Lafayette, IN. For her MS degree, she conducted an empirical evaluation of the benefits and burden that clinical decision support systems (i.e., computer-generated drug utilization review alerts) contributed to community pharmacy practice. Her focus of study for her PhD degree was patient adherence, quality of life, and outcomes research. Dr. Chui practiced pharmacy in community settings during her graduate studies. Before joining the University of Wisconsin School of Pharmacy faculty in 2008, Dr. Chui was on the faculty at Midwestern University College of Pharmacy - Glendale in Arizona. Dr. Chui currently teaches courses in Safety and Quality in the Medication Use System and Pharmacy in the Health Care System.
