Assistant Professor


 

 

 


Dr. Shiyanbola’s research examines patient perceptions and roles in medication use and its impact on medication adherence, health literacy and the elimination of health disparities. Specifically, Dr. Shiyanbola studies the perceptions of illness and medicines among underserved populations. She explores how to utilize and interweave patient perspectives into the development of tailored patient-centered medication use interventions. In her other areas of interests, Dr. Shiyanbola is exploring how pharmacy quality measures can be utilized by patients and empirically redesigning prescription warnings. She utilizes sociobehavioral and health psychology theories in her studies and employs qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods approaches in her work. Dr. Shiyanbola was a 2015-2016 NIH Mixed Methods Research Training Program Scholar and a 2016 National Institute of Minority Health and Health Disparities Research Institute Scholar. In 2016, she received a NIH KL2 Career Development Grant.

Dr. Shiyanbola is an Assistant Professor in the Social and Administrative Sciences Division in the School of Pharmacy. She received her Bachelor of Pharmacy (B.Pharm) degree from the University of Ibadan in Nigeria and her Ph.D. in Pharmaceutical Socioeconomics from the University of Iowa in Iowa City. For her PhD degree, Dr. Shiyanbola examined beliefs in medicines, changes in beliefs overtime and its impact on patient health outcomes. Before joining the University of Wisconsin School of Pharmacy faculty in 2013, Dr. Shiyanbola was a faculty at South Dakota State University College of Pharmacy. Dr. Shiyanbola teaches on the Psychosocial Aspects of Medication Use and the Role of the Pharmacist in the Public Health System.
