Dr. Coe is a pharmacist-health services researcher devoted to improving transitions of care and ensuring safe and effective medication use in older adults, especially those who are vulnerable, cognitively impaired, and with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. Her research focuses on improving medication use through pharmacist-provided comprehensive medication reviews and medication management, identifying strategies and interprofessional models of care to prevent medication-related problems during care transitions, and examining the impact of policy on health outcomes. Her work aims to implement and disseminate evidence-based interventions to improve health and medication use in older adults that address health disparities. Dr. Coe’s work has been funded by the American Foundation for Pharmaceutical Education, Michigan Institute for Clinical and Health Research KL2 award, Michigan Region VII Area Agency on Aging, and the University of Michigan NIH NIA-funded Center to Accelerate Population Research in Alzheimer’s.
