After graduating from the University of Tasmania with a Bachelor of Pharmacy in 2002, Dr Bereznicki worked as a community pharmacist throughout Tasmania and Queensland. Dr Bereznicki graduated with first class Honours from the University of Tasmania in 2007, and then received an Australian Postgraduate Award to undertake her PhD, which she completed in 2011. Her postgraduate research focused on the management of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. She closely collaborates with the Asthma Foundation of Tasmania, and she is a member of their Medical and Scientific Advisory Committee. Dr Bereznicki is now a Lecturer in Pharmacological Sciences within the division of Pharmacy, School of Medicine. She continues to conduct research in airways disease and other therapeutic areas, and supervises a number of research students.
Since commencing with the School in 2007, Dr Bereznicki has had a range of teaching responsibilities in pharmacology and pharmaceutical science and practice, and is now lecturer in Pharmacological Sciences. She is the unit coordinator for Pharmacology in Paramedic Practice (CSA236) in Hobart and Rozelle, and assists with teaching in Pharmacology (CSA230) and Pharmacy Skills in Practice 2 (CSA204).
Throughout her PhD candidature, Dr Bereznicki implemented a computerised solution within community pharmacies to identify and educate people with poorly managed asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. She has developed a strong record in conducting respiratory research in the community pharmacy setting, and made a significant contribution to Australian pharmacy practice research. Dr Bereznicki's projects have been of considerable public benefit improving the quality of life for patients with airways diseases, as well as advancing the profession of pharmacy and developing new roles for pharmacists. Her research has been performed in very close collaboration with respiratory specialists, general practitioners and pharmacists, and the Asthma Foundation of Tasmania. Dr Bereznicki's research interests have since expanded to include paediatric asthma, and improving the quality use of medications in a number of therapeutic areas.
