Addysgu

I have been module leader for years 1 and 4 in the past. Currently I am module leader for the professional development modules in the course. My duties mainly involve supporting students during their reflective journey and transition to independent healthcare practitioners, in preparation for their future career.

I contribute in a range of teaching and assessment activities throughout all four years of the MPharm curriculum. I supervise undergraduate and postgraduate projects, and I regularly participate as an assessor in post-graduate and pre-registration OSCEs.

My methodological expertise lies in action research with current focus on optimising practice-based learning. My scholarship is focussed in designing, implementing and evaluating innovative opportunities for exposure to practice via role-emerging placements.

Research interests

Coming from a medicinal chemistry background followed by clinical pharmacy practice, I have a huge amount of experience in collaborative working with different stakeholders.

Within the health services areas of research include medication management and cost-analysis of medication wastage from Medication Administration Record (MAR) in care homes, as well as discharge from hospital and the role of Discharge Advice Letters (DALs) in a seeming transition and integration into primary care. Additionally, translating research from service evaluation projects into practice, in particular the Discharge Medication Review (DMR) service and the Common Ailment Scheme (CAS) that is being piloted in Wales.

I am an active researcher in clinical trials, in collaboration with South East Wales Trials Unit (SEWTU).
