I gained my PhD in 2001 and my thesis was entitled "The Role of the Practice Pharmacist in the Promotion of Evidence Based Prescribing". This research focussed on evaluation of the impact of Primary Care Pharmacists implementing prescribing guidelines, medication review and intervention to reduce benzodiazepine prescribing.

I have since supervised approximately 65 Pharmacy undergraduate students undertaking research projects linked to medicines management/optimisation and community pharmacy development. I have supervised 6 MSc students to completion, on a range of topics linked to optimising use of medication and medicines-related safety. I have additionally been involved in the supervision of 6 doctoral students, the details of which are listed above.

I have also undertaken small-scale projects in pharmacy education plan to become more involved in this type of research.
