Initiated in 2005, Partner for Promotion has impacted hundreds of students and pharmacists and brought about the creation and expansion of dozens of novel, direct patient care services in community-based settings, hospitals and ambulatory care clinics. Annual surveys conducted with students and pharmacists show consistently improved confidence in service development skills after being involved in Partner for Promotion; an estimated 60 percent of services developed at pharmacies continue being offered after the program ends.
Partner for Promotion has reached 16 Ohio counties. In 2009, Partner for Promotion expanded beyond the state. This model of training and service expansion has been adopted at six additional colleges of Pharmacy across the nation.
