Roseman Medical Group (RMG), the medical practice of Roseman University of Health Sciences, is enhancing patient care by adding an in-house clinical pharmacist to its practice. KayLynn Bowman, PharmD has joined RMG to assist patients in managing chronic diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol, and to provide medication therapy management and consultation.
“Pharmacists practicing alongside providers is becoming more commonplace in Nevada and across the country,” said Andra Prum, DO, medical director of RMG. “We are proud to create this kind of collaboration within RMG as it will greatly benefit our patients.”
Bowman says, the impact of medication-related problems can be minimized when pharmacists work collaboratively with providers. “Any patient that has the diagnosis of diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and using prescription or nonprescription medication, herbal products, and other dietary supplements benefit from medication therapy management. This helps prevent medication-related issues such as non-adherence, uncontrolled symptoms, and complex medication regimens.
“Through medication therapy management, pharmacists identify, prioritize and resolve medication related problems through actively collaborating with and empowering patients to take an active role in their health outcomes,” adds Bowman.
As RMG’s clinical pharmacist, Bowman will focus on patient education, medication management and work directly with the practices’ family medicine, neurology and pediatric nephrology providers to develop patient care plans. This will especially benefit patients that have chronic health conditions and are prescribed multiple medications.
Bowman earned her Doctor of Pharmacy from Roseman University of Health Sciences’ Henderson campus in 2007. She has also earned a Master of Science in Pharmacy, Medication Therapy Management from University of Florida, and Master of Science in Biochemistry and Master of Education Health Education, Health Care Administration from University of Nevada, Las Vegas. She also serves as a clinical adjunct faculty for Roseman University’s College of Pharmacy and in 2017 the college awarded Bowman Preceptor of the Year for Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience. Bowman is a Member of American Pharmacists Association and American Society of Consultant Pharmacists.
