The pharmacotherapy research group focuses on the optimisation of drug therapy—encompassing clinical and translational research—to improve the safe, appropriate and economical use of drugs in patient care. This primary focus is the acute care sector and transitions of care

A key feature of this work is a collaborative, multidisciplinary healthcare team approach to identifying and developing improvements in clinical practice and patient care through medication use.

Our research focuses on a broad range of drug therapies and practice initiative in the hospital setting and points of transition contributing to the better use of medications and improved patient outcomes.

Our goal is to identify the most effective ways to organise, manage, and deliver high quality medication management services in an interdisciplinary context that improve medication safety and use.
