We’re pleased to announce that Feng Chang, faculty member at the School of Pharmacy, has been promoted to Associate Professor with tenure.
Dr. Chang is a clinical faculty member whose work spans a variety of fields. She explores geriatric pharmacotherapy, examining effective medication use in elderly, rural-dwelling patients. A trained pharmacist, she is also an advocate for her profession and examines new services or models of care that pharmacists can employ on interprofessional teams. She is also the Chair of Rural Pharmacy at the Gateway Center of Excellence in Rural Health.
Her research and projects respond to relevant concerns in the Canadian healthcare landscape. To assist in combatting the ongoing opioid crisis, she co-leads the Opioid Education Partnership. This collaborative online program spreads evidence-based opioid management knowledge to various healthcare professions. She also co-leads the Chronic Pain Management by Rural and Urban Community Pharmacists project. The project team studies, develops, and implements new pharmacist services to better manage chronic pain in rural and urban communities.
Dr. Chang teaches in both the School of Pharmacy’s undergraduate and graduate programs, lecturing on topics like geriatric healthcare and in courses on patient-focused care. She supervises pharmacy students on research projects and on co-op and rotation placements, giving students opportunities to apply their knowledge in a rural interdisciplinary family health team setting.
