About Carole Kimberlin

Carole Kimberlin, Ph.D. has taught a course for pharmacy students on “Professional Communications in Pharmacy Practice” and courses in the Ph.D. and M.S. programs on “Measurement in Pharmacy Research” and “The Patient and the Drug Use Process.” Her research interests include patient decisions on medication use and the effects of pharmacist-patient relationship and communication variables on patient understanding of therapy as well as their health attitudes and adherence to therapy. She is co-author of the widely-used textbook “Communication Skills in Pharmacy Practice”, currently in its 5th edition.

Kimberlin was Principal Investigator (PI) on an FDA-funded project to evaluate Consumer Medication Information leaflets dispensed with prescriptions in community pharmacies. She also was PI on a National Cancer Institute project which interviewed cancer patients, family caregivers, pharmacists, physicians, and nurses on barriers to effective communication between providers and patients regarding pain management.

Kimberlin is a Fellow in the American Pharmacists Association (APhA). She was awarded a Lifetime Achievement in 2012, an award in research in social pharmacy, and won the 2013 Wiederholt Prize for best paper in the Journal of the American Pharmacists Association (JAPhA). She is currently on a National Institutes of Health (NIH) Review Panel for Health Literacy grant applications and serves on the Limited English Proficiency and Pharmacy Practice Advisory Group formed by the National Health Law Program and AACP.
