Research summaryClinical and social pharmacy; effective use of medicines
  • QUM module coordinator
  • Clinical Pharmacy Practice


  • Quality use of medicines: From prescription to disposal and beyond
  • Consequences of unused medications: Patients, financial and environmental

My research focus is the use of prescription medications and investigating the wastage as a result of non-compliance, over-supply and other factors. As this is such a multi-faceted area I have several themes including primary and secondary adherence, prescribing practices and policies, patient outcomes, storage and disposal, and the environmental impact of pharmaceuticals.
