Dr. Daniel Arendt (he/him) is an Assistant Professor of Pharmacy Practice and Administrative Sciences with a focus in Pain Management and Opioid Stewardship at the University of Cincinnati James L. Winkle College of Pharmacy. Within the college of pharmacy, he teaches pain management within the Therapeutics IV course in the third pharmacy professional year. He additionally coordinates clinical skills labs focused on pain management and serves on the PharmD admissions committee and the faculty development and recognition committee. In addition to his roles within the college, Dr. Arendt serves as the pain stewardship clinical pharmacy specialist at University of Cincinnati Medical Center. As the pain stewardship pharmacist for UCMC, he serves as a chair of the pain stewardship committee for UC Health, where he works to develop a system-wide pain stewardship program to optimize the practice of pain management and reduce opioid-related adverse events within not only the UC health system, but the greater Cincinnati community.
Dr. Arendt, originally from Buffalo, NY, earned both his Bachelor of Science in Pharmaceutical Sciences and his Doctor of Pharmacy degree from The University of Toledo.

Locally he is a member of the Hamilton County Addiction Response Coalition, where he works to integrate the communities and universities response to the opioid overdose epidemic.

Research and Practice Interests

I am interested in implementing and studying comprehensive strategies that limit the negative impacts of opioid use and combat the stigma surrounding addiction and mental health. Implementing, supporting, and studying community initiatives such as increased naloxone access, increased availability of PrEP, fentanyl test strips, and clean syringes as well as any other interventions that increase the safety of people who use drugs as well as that which increases their access to addiction treatment is critically important.

I additionally study our development of a pain stewardship program and assess the initiatives put in place within our health system. Those initiatives that are successful should be shared in the hopes of creating a reproducible model for improving pain management practices at other institutions across the country.

Lastly, I am aware of the levels of burnout, anxiety and depression within the pharmacy profession. Across the nation it is seen within the student, resident and even faculty populations. Determining the true sources of this burnout and working to develop more supportive learning and working conditions for both future and current pharmacists is a passion of mine.
