Dr. MacCallum leads the development and evaluation of innovative educational programs designed to support and empower pharmacists in the care of people with diabetes. Recognizing the need for pharmacists to play a greater role in the medication management of diabetes patients, she founded the first Canadian Diabetes Pharmacists Network and is the Editor-in-Chief of the BBDC Guidebook on Diabetes Management which has been referenced by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-term Care and is used by over 6000 health care providers across Canada. Her current research focuses on the evaluation of expanded pharmacy services including an evaluation of the MedsCheck Diabetes program in Ontario.  Her research aims to identify the most substantial barriers and facilitators to follow-up of people with diabetes and to develop and evaluate strategies to improve follow-up by community pharmacists using quality improvement methods.
