Research interests

Areas of research
My areas of research involve medication management, medication adherence, and medication safety. I am also interested in consumer participation in health care, as well as communication processes in health care and the ways in which communication relates to adverse events.

Research methodologies
My work has encompassed interventional approaches including pre-post evaluations and randomised controlled trials. I have also completed ethnographic studies incorporating observation of clinical practice, focus groups and interviews. My work has also utilised epidemiological designs, incorporating prospective and retrospective observational approaches.
