Clinical microbiology research group
Key research topics
Focused on our MPharm degree, our projects include evaluation of the role of simulated clinical experiences, alternative methods of delivery of teaching such as the “flipped classroom”, the teaching of professionalism, the impact of immersive education in a practice environment on learning and the role of mentors and peer-assisted learning.
The practice-focussed research includes evaluation of the role of pharmacy team in general practice, the safety of monitored dosage systems, errors and learning in mental health prescribing, the legacy and sustainability of Healthy Living Pharmacies, the involvement of patients, prescribers and the pharmaceutical industry on decisions about mental health prescribing and safety/risk related decisions in paediatric prescribing. Other research includes the investigation of possible altered pharmacokinetic properties of anti-infectives in patients with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation.
