Research

  • Changes and challenges in health care economics and demographics bring a need for change in pharmacy professional practice. Research in the School of Pharmacy is focused on this situation.
  • The provincial and national environment contains a rapidly aging population with increasing cost pressures on the health care system. A large landmass, settlement patterns, and harsh weather conditions pose challenges to health care delivery in rural and remote areas. This has implications for both patients and health professionals, and it is sometimes a challenge to meet the needs of all citizens.
  • The changing, increasingly challenging model of pharmacy practice requires discovery of new practice models to ensure that pharmacy services are economically sustainable.

Programme Structure

Graduate supervisors in Memorial’s School of Pharmacy are engaged in research in the following areas:

  • Health Outcomes research assesses the end results of health care services, providing evidence for the value of specific medical treatmentes or interventions that can be used to make better decisions and improve health care.
  • Drug Discovery and Delivery research encompasses all aspects of the delivery, development, administration, and use of therapeutic drugs, leading to better treatment options.
  • The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning helps inform our understanding of student learning and enhances education for the pharmacists of tomorrow.
