ULM College of Pharmacy faculty published in major pharmaceutical journal

Dr. Greg Leader, interim dean of the University of Louisiana at Monroe’s College of Pharmacy, recently congratulated three of his faculty following their publication in the Journal of the American Pharmaceutical Association.

Dr. Emily Weidman-Evans, Dr. Tibb Jacobs and Dr. Jeff Evans from the Department of Clinical and Administrative Sciences, published the article, “Impact of a pharmacist-developed protocol on the cardiac monitoring of methadone in non-cancer pain management,” for the recent APhA edition.

The article was published electronically in September 2009 and the abstract is referenced in the pubmed database.

The article stemmed from their research involving a pain management clinic affiliated with LSU Health Sciences in Shreveport and in collaboration with Dr. Phillip Isherwood, M.D., and Dr. Tara Jenkins, an assistant professor of pharmacy administration in the ULM College of Pharmacy when the research was undertaken.

“It is especially rewarding to see the cross-campus and cross institution collaboration involved in the research. I look forward to seeing these researchers’ continued contributions to the literature,” said Leader.

Weidman-Evans earned a doctor of pharmacy from the University of Florida. Her teaching and clinical interests include diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, pain management, cultural competence, clinic development and implementation.

Jacobs earned a doctor of pharmacy from the University of Louisiana at Monroe. Her teaching and clinical interests include hypertension, gastrointestinal disease, ambulatory care; specifically, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, diabetes and anticoagulation

Jeff Evans earned his doctor of pharmacy from the University of Florida. His teaching and clinical interests include assessment through different teaching methods and implementation of disease state management clinics by pharmacists.
