Biography

As a psychologist, my research generates important contributions to the NHS agenda for optimising medicines use, specifically understanding how information about medicines and how pharmacist-delivered interventions can support adherence to medicines.  This is underpinned by using theoretical models from health psychology to understand the factors that can explain medicine-taking behaviour.

In my role as the Clinical Research Co-ordinator for the Pharmaceutical Sciences CAG, I support the ongoing development of KHP’s pharmacy clinical academic workforce. I teach medicines adherence, consultation skills and research methodology throughout the MPharm programme and on the PG Cert/Dip/MSc in Pharmacy Practice. My work has led to the creation of two MOOCs on medicines adherence that sit on FutureLearn:  Supporting Patients with their Treatment (over 25,000 learners), and the follow-up, Understanding & Changing Patient Behaviour (over 3,000 learners). I am also a contributor to the Level 1 training module provided by KHP’s Centre for Adherence Research and Education.
