"After managing a community pharmacy in York I returned to academia in 1992 to undertake a PhD to evaluate the role of the clinical pharmacist in care homes. This resulted in two future research streams, improving the quality and delivery of pharmacist education and integrating the pharmacist into the healthcare team. My research skills include the delivery of national surveys, systematic reviews, feasibility and pilot studies to definitive trials. Areas of interest are the management of medicines in care homes, the administration of medicines to patients with swallowing problems and the improvement of information transfer between care settings. Additionally I have been involved in a number of studies to improve the quality of pharmacist education. Current projects I am involved in include a feasibility study to determine the effect of 24 hours medicines reconciliation by pharmacists in the hospital setting, a pilot study to determine the effect of using the provision of patient services as a model for undergraduate pharmacist education and a definitive trial to determine the effect of multi-disciplinary medication review in care homes. Recently completed studies include a feasibility study to test the use of individualised medication administration guides on the hospital ward, an exploratory study to determine the effect of pharmacist independent prescribers on the management of chronic pain and a systematic review of minor ailments services.

I have a strong interest in teaching and have won teaching awards at both institutes in which I was employed. I am focussed on providing an excellent undergraduate and postgraduate pharmacy student experience and use my research and research interests to inform both the content and delivery of both UEA programs. I completed a national review of pharmacist education in 2006, a number of subsequent recommendations having been introduced and in 2012 undertook an independent review of competency frameworks on behalf of the Department of Health. The recommendations from which are currently being used to structure postgraduate pharmacist education and training."
