Alfred Health Pharmacy is involved in a range of medication and practice-related research activities.
We provide a research focus on acute health and medication use that contributes to the research activities of the Centre for Medicine Use and Safety (CMUS), one of the key research units within the Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences of Monash University, Parkville Campus.
Research activities come under the broad banner of evaluating the Quality Use of Medicines with the following themes:
- medication safety
- pharmacy practice research
- health-outcomes research
The department is involved in a wide range of studies, from NHMRC and ARC funded multicentre collaborations through to industry partnerships and investigator-initiated practice evaluation programs.
