The Centre for Addiction Research: who, what and why

In 2012, the University approved the formation of the Centre for Addiction Research – a new centre for FMHS. This exciting development heralds in a new era  in the addictions-related research within the Faculty. A/P Janie Sheridan will be talking about the history of addictions research in the Faculty, and functions and purpose of the new Centre and the Centre’s aims and aspirations for the next 5 years.

Presented by: Associate Professor Janie Sheridan , Research Director and Deputy Head of School School of Pharmacy

Medication sharing: Qualitative exploration of patients’ perspectives

Medication sharing, defined as giving medications to someone else “loaning” or taking someone else’s medication “borrowing”, is a growing medical and public health concern because of the possible repercussions of such behaviour. To date, no-one is considering the patient perspective. In this presentation, I will talk about a research plan for the first phase of my PhD research.

Presented by: Kebede Beyene , PhD Student, School of Pharmacy
