Abstract

Objectives. To establish and evaluate an ambulatory care renal transplantation clinic advanced pharmacy practice experience (APPE). Design. Students spend 5 weeks performing pharmaceutical care activities for renal transplant patients, presenting health-related topics, and conducting research. A paired t test was used to determine differences between students' pre- and post-APPE test scores. Standardized evaluations completed by the preceptor and the students were used to evaluate learning and the APPE. Assessment. Posttest scores were significantly higher than pretest scores (n = 17; 88.2 ±7.3 vs 55.9 ± 22.4; p < 0.001). Overall, students found this APPE enjoyable and believed that it increased their knowledge concerning transplant medicine and patient care. Conclusion. With the recommendation that all transplant programs have clinical pharmacy services, it is imperative to train students to care for transplant patients. Information in this manuscript can be used as a guide for utilizing the combined resources from schools of pharmacy and transplantation centers to implement a renal transplant ambulatory care APPE.
