APhA-APRS ESAS Colleagues in Research: Navigating the Two-Way Street of Practice-Based Research


We gain so much from practice-based research, such as evidence of pharmacists’ value in improving patient care and advances in pharmacy practice models. Still, some struggle to engage in this important work—especially those not affiliated with an academic institution or with one emphasizing research. See examples of projects that started on both the researcher’s and the practitioner’s side and learn how collaboration can lead to new breakthroughs. 

Pharmacist Learning Objectives

At the completion of this knowledge-based activity, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the importance of practice-based research in advancing pharmacy practice.
  2. Identify common barriers to conducting practice-based research.
  3. Discuss strategies to enhance collaboration between practitioners and researchers when conducting practice-based research.
