Research Areas

The University of Bradford's Education, Innovation Research and Development research group's vision is to put the University of Bradford at the centre of Innovative Pharmacy Education. At the core of this is improving the student experience.

Previous projects include:

  • Development of Cultural Awareness and Sensitivity amongst Healthcare Professionals, academic staff and students to enhance patient-centred care.
  • Using the techniques of Motivational Interviewing (MI) to enhance student learning.
  • Developing a portfolio-based approach to encourage continuing professional development (CPD) in undergraduate pharmacy students.
  • Using a ‘communities of practice’ approach to coaching and mentoring community pharmacists in developing their CPD.
  • Developing evaluation methods for curriculum review.
  • Developing educational and practice supervisors (DEPS) in the pharmacy workplace.
  • Using peer-assessment as a tool to promote student learning and reduce the burden of summative assessment.

Current Projects

My current research includes

  1. Educational Evaluation of the MPharm programme using Team-Based Learning as a whole of curricula educational intervention.
  2. Evaluation of the ‘Making Time’ project. A study developed to explore pharmacists working with carers and service users who have learning disabilities. The project offered one-to-one monthly meetings between these parties to help to support service users and their carers with their medicines and health education.
  3. Co-Supervisor of a Doctoral fellowship student in the UoB’s Dementia Doctoral Training Centre which focuses on transitions in care setting and disease/life stages.
