Pharmacy Preceptor Profile: Jim Prota of Connecticut Hospice

UConn Today – May 16, 2019 – Sheila Foran/School of Pharmacy

Connecticut Hospice is a peaceful place. Nestled on the shore of Long Island Sound  in Branford, Conn., the 52-bed in-patient palliative care facility includes family friendly meeting rooms, common areas filled with artwork, and a campus that invites reflection. Jim Prota has worked at Connecticut Hospice as Director of Pharmacy since 2006. During that time, he has served as a preceptor for students from the UConn School of Pharmacy, and others, introducing them to the particular issues a pharmacist faces when dealing with such a unique patient population.

“I ask students why they chose to come here for one of their rotations,” he says, “and they often say they are interested in pain management. Then they admit that they are a little uncomfortable, expecting that this might not be the happiest place to work. By the end of their time here, they have had a chance to see what a warm, actually happy, work environment this is.”
