Informing and influencing the practice of pharmacy and the development of policy around medicines usage and approval.

(Coordinator, Dai John )

 

Particular expertise in this discipline is in the development and application of health-related quality-of-life measures with which to evaluate the clinical effectiveness of various drug therapies in a number of diseases, such as Alzheimer’s-type dementia, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease and cancer. A composite measure of health status is employed to evaluate patient outcomes using two methodological approaches: firstly, through hypothesis testing studies such as randomised controlled trials and secondly, through the routine application of quality-of-life measures in clinical decision-making (including prescribing) and patient monitoring. 

Other research expertise includes the development of models for benefit/risk assessment of medicines, drug treatment decision support systems, and issues relating to global pharmaceutical development and its regulation.

Current research interests include:
-
Pharmacoepidemiology
- Pharmacovigilance
- Patient communication; Decision-making  
- Pharmaceutical public health
- Pharmacy education, training and professional development
- Pharmaceutical regulatory environment and drug development
