James B. Groce III, Pharm.D., CACP

James B. Groce III, Pharm.D., is Professor, Department of Pharmacy Practice at Campbell University School of Pharmacy. He also is Clinical Assistant Professor of Medicine at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine and Clinical Pharmacy Specialist-Anticoagulation at the Moses H. Cone Memorial Hospital in Greensboro, North Carolina.

He served as principal investigator at Moses H. Cone Health System for DVT FREE, a national registry trial examining risk factors and prevalence of DVT. Additionally, he was part of the 11 member steering committee for this initiative. He is one of 20 principal investigators for a national cohort study on bridging patients onto LMWH who require interruption of their chronic anticoagulant therapy. He represents pharmacy nationally on the Council for Leadership on Thrombosis Awareness and Management (CLOT Council) as its sole pharmacist member on this physician-based panel of National thought leaders and experts on thromboembolism as well as the Coalition Against DVT in the same capacity.

Among his extensive research activities, Dr. Groce served as principal investigator of a pharmacoeconomic evaluation of the use of LMWH for outpatient therapy of DVT in a community teaching hospital setting. He also has conducted clinical evaluations of various heparin weight-based-dosing nomograms, the utility of heparin level determinations and outcomes analysis, comparison of bedside point-of-care testing to standard laboratory tests (e.g., PT/INR, aPTT, and heparin levels), and warfarin dosing software validation. He has been published and cited in peer-reviewed medical and pharmacy journals as well as textbooks of pharmacy.

He has presented extensively regarding the interchange of Narrow Therapeutic Index Drugs and its impact with respect to efficacy and safety, and pharmacoeconmics; he gave testimony before the state Senate and House Subcommittees of the North Carolina Legislature examining this issue that resulted in Senate Bill 945 - The Prescription Refill Safety Act.

Dr. Groce is certified by the National Certification Board for Anticoagulation Providers. He currently manages an anticoagulation clinic servicing over 100 patients and supervises pharmacy practice residents training in anticoagulation at this site. He also serves as chairperson of the Carolinas Anticoagulation ReSource group (CARS), an organization of over 300 physicians, pharmacists, nurses and laboratorians in the two Carolinas who specialize in providing anticoagulation management services.
