Rosie lectures, and is a tutor to students in undergraduate units specifically in the Pharmacy Practice Area. In 2014, Rosie's PhD commitments will reduce her teaching capacity. However her PhD in Pharmacy Education aims to support students to become self-directed competent health professionals. Rosie is keen to continue to explore the use of novel teaching approaches such as flipped classroom, e-portfolio and blended learning.
Rosie graduated from UTAS with a Bachelor of Pharmacy in 2001. She completed her intern year at Melbourne Private/Royal Melbourne Hospital in 2001 and went on to work at Cabrini Hospital as a Clinical Pharmacist and Aseptic/Chemotherapy Pharmacist. Rosie also worked in community pharmacy practice throughout this time.
Rosie then returned to Tasmania to work at Royal Hobart Hospital as a clinical pharmacist and later moved to UMORE for a career in research. Rosie completed her Honours degree (economic evaluation of QUM program - MedeSupport) in 2006. Throughout this time Rosie continued her commitments and interest in community pharmacy practice.
In 2007, Rosie lived and worked in London as a Senior Clinical Pharmacist in Cardiology and Cardiothoracic Surgery at St Georges Hospital. On return to Tasmania Rosie continued to work with UMORE on various research projects including the NPS Nurse Practitioner Prescribing Accreditation Project and Project managed the NPS DMACs project. Rosie split her time equally between UMORE and Calvary hospital allowing her to maintain her clinical, practical and aseptic dispensing skills at this time.
In 2010 Rosie commenced a teaching position at UTAS in pharmacy practice. To date Rosie has developed her teaching methods and has in the past co-ordinated units within the school. Rosie continued to regularly practice in community pharmacy up until 2013 but still engages in activities that support and enhance the development of the pharmacy profession.
Moving away from research in Quality Use of Medicines in recent times, Rosie has discovered an area of research that draws on her previous experiences and passion for teaching. Rosie is interested in exploring Quality Assurance (QA) of Learning & Teaching. Rosie's PhD (commenced 2012) aims to determine if the explicit use of the National Competency Standards Framework for Pharmacists in Australia and /or ALTC Pharmacy TLOs into an undergraduate pharmacy curriculum using an electronic tool (presented as; mapping tool, e-portfolios, students self-assessment against the CS, annual reporting of student achievements against CS) lead to acceptance by stakeholders and improved educational outcomes?
Rosie is currently involved in a vibrant UTAS wide 360° Peer Learning Circle (PLC) that share expertise and resources around QA of Learning & Teaching. Rosie is also writing papers around novel teaching approaches in collaboration with other staff from other faculties across UTAS.
