My research goal is to use the best available evidence to guide medication use in primary care. My research focuses on the potential for emerging technologies to improve medication use in the community, including smart phones and social media platforms. Another focus is the influence of health policy on medication use in the community, including changes to remuneration programs and formularies. In my current projects, I am studying the use of mobile apps in Canadians over age 55 and social media use across the profession of pharmacy. I am also a licensed and practicing community pharmacist.
