BPharm (Hons) thesis (2007): Data-mining of community pharmacy dispending records to improve the management of asthma
PhD thesis (2011): Improving the management of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (supervisors Professor Gregory Peterson, Professor Haydn Walters and Dr Shane Jackson)
Dr Bereznicki's research has focused on using a computerised solution (data-mining) within community pharmacies to identify and subsequently educate adults with asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Dr Bereznicki has developed a strong record 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.
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. She supervises a number of Honours students within Pharmacy.
