Angela Maldonado, Pharm.D.
Doctor of Pharmacy, University of the Pacific
Pharmacy Practice Residency PGYI, Sacred Heart Medical Center
Dr. Maldonado serves as preceptor to clerkship students assigned to the Kidney Transplant Service at Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center. She also actively teaches in team-taught pharmacy courses including: Pharmacotherapy IV, Advanced Pharmacotherapy, Parenteral Products, Special Populations, and is the "Instructor of Record" for an elective course in advanced topics in immunology/transplantation. It is her goal to provide a comprehensive and fun learning environment that fosters clinically strong, independent pharmacy practitioners.
Maldonado’s primary research interest includes pharmacotherapy related to direct patient care in immunology and transplantation with an emphasis on transplant infectious diseases and pharmacist related patient outcomes. Her current research focuses on quantifying the impact of dedicated clinical pharmacists on patient outcomes in the area of compliance, education, health literacy, and overall patient outcomes in regards to graft/patient survival and reduction of collateral damage from immunosuppressants. Additional interests include enrollment in investigational drug trials and registries, and development of effective protocols to gather PK/PD data and streamline the medication orders process. Goals related to the field of transplant include continued educational efforts for young practitioners, establishing the importance of the role of clinical pharmacy in transplant patient care with governing bodies and hospital administrators and to add to the body of transplant knowledge.
In the fall of 2008, Maldonado accepted a position as part of the Kidney Transplant Team at PSHMC. Activities are dedicated to inpatient transplant care, ambulatory outpatient clinic, research, and academic activities.
