Develop strategies to overcome obstacles and resistance to medication synchronization launch and sustainability"


Dr. Ashley Firm is a recent graduate of the University of Pittsburgh School of Pharmacy. After graduation, she completed a community pharmacy residency with the University of Georgia and Barney's Pharmacy in Augusta Georgia where she focused in community outreach and pharmacy operations, including medication synchronization. Once completing her residency, Dr. Firm returned to the Pittsburgh area and started at Asti's South Hills Pharmacy as the Clinical Pharmacy Coordinator. Since that time, her role at Asti's has expanded to include managing the Long Term Care Pharmacy and co-managing the adherence packaging program. Asti's Pharmacy started many clinical services under Dr Firm including Point of Care Testing, Disease State Educations, and Medication Synchronization.
