For Immediate Release

Four alumni of the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo Daniel K. Inouye College of Pharmacy recently presented their post-graduate residency research projects to an online meeting of the Hawaiʻi Pharmacists Association (HPhA). Attended by pharmacist leaders and preceptors, this year’s online meeting provided a forum for residents to be evaluated on their presentation, research quality, ability to answer questions and the impact of their project on pharmacy practice at their residency sites.

The four DKICP alumni presenters include:

Dr. Edwina Leung (Class of 2015) completed a PGY2 specialty residency in psychiatry and mental health at the Hawaiʻi State Hospital. She presented “Clinical implementation of pharmacogenomic testing at a forensic psychiatric hospital: a pilot study examining implementation strategies, prescriber acceptability, and barriers to the service.”

Dr. Nicholas Tsoi (Class of 2019) is a PGY1 clinical pharmacy resident at DKICP and Hawaiʻi Pacific Health. His project was on “Evaluation of pharmacy supported diabetic ketoacidosis management.”

Dr. Rachel Randall (Class of 2019) is a PGY1 clinical pharmacy resident at DKICP and Hawaiʻi Pacific Health. She presented “Impact of pharmacy-led ASP timeouts to assess piperacillin-tazobactam use.”

Dr. Kelsey Noetzelmann (Class of 2019) is a PGY1 clinical pharmacy resident at Tripler Army Medical Center on O`ahu. She presented “Vancomycin therapeutic drug monitoring based on area under the curve.”
