Spotlight on...PSHP Board Member Matt Scola During hurricane season, Matt Scola pays close attention to the Weather Channel, even though he lives in Northwest Pennsylvania. As the Pharmacy Leader for the PA-3 Disaster Medical Assistance Team (DMAT), he needs to be ready to deploy at a moment's notice to help those in disaster areas.
Matt has been with the team since 2003.

"They desperately need people that understand the drug distribution system," Scola says. Some of the ways you can get involved with disaster response would be to serve on a organization's emergency preparedness committee, or serving in a medical reserve corps.
As part of this team and his role as Emergency Preparedness Coordinator for UPMC Northwest, Matt thinks about how potential problems such as a pandemic flu, like the H1N1 virus, might impact his hospital. "You need to prepare the hospital pharmacy for a potential outbreak by creating contingency plans for staffing in the case that most of your staff gets sick," Scola says. "How will you take care of the patients if they increase significantly in number with less staff? Also, how will this H1N1 virus impact the drug distribution, from the manufacturer down to the patient.
All of this action might make a day as the Director of Pharmacy at UPMC Northwest seem somewhat mundane, but there are many day-to-day challenges within this role such as numerous meetings, budgetary issues, automation issues, employee evaluations and staffing shortages. "Staffing is one of our biggest challenges, because it is hard to find experienced health system pharmacists in a rural area," Matt says.
Matt also has a lot of experience with pain management. "Pain management is always a challenge for several reasons: First, there are very limited treatment options for pain. Next, there is the stigma of the abuse that controlled substances bring and, of course, the liability issues since some of these medications are often the cause of serious medication errors."
Matt also sees a lot of benefit to PSHP membership.

When not at work or away responding to an area in need, Matt spends his free time renovating his home, playing fantasy football, and traveling.
