Hello! My name is Brent Reed and I am an associate professor at the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy and I practice as a clinical pharmacist in advanced heart failure at the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore, MD.
Aside from cardiology, my other main professional area of interest is work psychology and in 2017, I began pursuing a master’s degree in applied psychology (industrial/organizational psychology) at the University of Baltimore. Patient engagement has been the subject of considerable research but little is known about the subject among health care professionals. Burnout is common across disciplines, and our existing systems are ill-equipped to handle it. I hope to use my training to study the modern health care workplace and identify ways to improve care delivery without losing our most important resource: people.
Additional information about my scholarly contributions, including my curriculum vitae, can be found on my faculty website. In 2015, my colleagues and I co-founded the Applied Therapeutics, Research, and Instruction at the University of Maryland (ATRIUM) collaborative, which focuses on the advancement of care provided to patients with cardiovascular disease. More information about our work can be found here.
