The Bracken Pharmaceutical Care Learning Center is named for L.D. Bracken and Jim L. Bracken, longtime leaders of the pharmacy profession in Washington. The Center provides an optimal environment for students and practitioners to learn the technical and clinical skills needed for patient-focused care. The Center consists of six integrated learning areas: sterile products and biotechnology preparation room, automated dispensing equipment area, technology-supported learning center, patient education/nonprescription products, patient assessment room, and conference room. The laboratory components of drug information, compounding, dispensing, communications and therapeutics coursework are all offered in the Center, and are supported by state-of-the-art computer, video and telecommunications equipment. The Center is used throughout the Doctor of Pharmacy curriculum, and is also available to pharmacy practitioners for skill development programs and special projects.
