My current major focus is the _AD_verse _D_rug _R_eaction/_E_vent _S_creening _S_ystem (ADDRESS), an application we have developed for discerning ongoing, high incidence ADE/ADRs (side effects to the layperson) in the ambulatory population. The system is multilingual and designed to be as psychometrically efficient as possible. See:

I have a long-term interest in the development and evolution of Advance Practice Models in Pharmacy, such as the Pharmacy Acts currently in place in New Mexico, North Carolina, and Montana, and the barriers to success in those states and the lag-time of adoption elsewhere in the country.

I’ve spent considerable time working with and developing PROs (Patient reported Outcomes) instruments, especially Health-Related Quality of Life (HRQoL). A reasonably competent psychometrician.

Finally, to pursue many of the questions I have found interesting over the years, I have a nuanced and well-developed expertise in survey research, as it is often the only way to survey the field in a new area.
