Pharmacy Practice and Policy Division

Our aim is in social research around medicines use, the pharmacists’ role in practice, public health, education and workforce, through empirical application of quantitative and qualitative methodologies.

Research includes the advancement of knowledge about medicines and the pharmacist’s role to influence practice and policy for the improved health of patients and optimal use of society’s resources.

We focus on pharmacy education and workforce development research both nationally and globally, leading to policy formation.
