Project HOME is a non-profit organization in Philadelphia that provides housing, employment opportunities, medical care, and education for chronically homeless individuals with serious mental health conditions.
One nurse oversees the medication use process at three of Project HOME’s residences; however, non-clinical staff are responsible for carrying out the medication use process.
The purpose of this project was to identify how the Jefferson College of Pharmacy’s APhA-ASP chapter could assist Project HOME with their medication-related needs and improve the medication use process.
