Peninsula Medical School (Faculty of Health)
Research Assistant, working as part of the Collaboration for the Advancement of Medical Education Research and Assessment (CAMERA).
I joined the University of Plymouth in 2021, as part of the CAMERA research group, working on a multidisciplinary project aiming to enhance analysis of and learning from Fitness to Practice (FTP) cases for dental professionals. The ultimate goal of the project is to appropriately inform the General Dental Council and optimise the respective policies around FTP cases for dental professionals.
I completed my PhD in pharmacy practice in late 2020. As part of my doctoral thesis, I aimed to build evidence for the impact of pharmacists in general practice. This was done by exploring the experiences and the views of various stakeholder groups, including patients, community pharmacy teams and general practice-based staff.
In 2016, I completed an MSc in Clinical Pharmacy at University College London and worked in a collaborative project with Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust which attempted to identify the impact of electronic prescribing systems on ward pharmacist work.
