Corinne coordinates both fourth year Pharmacy Skills in Practice (CSA457) and the capstone placement unit of the Bachelor of Pharmacy degree (CSA430 Pharmacy Skills). Both units are an integration of theoretical and practical work that develops students' professional and clinical skills in a variety of pharmacy practice settings. She also teaches content in other units in the degree related to clinical hospital practice and qualitative research.
Corinne is particularly interested in the flipped classroom approach to teaching, and is slowly incorporating this style of teaching into her practice.
Corinne graduated with Honours from Pharmacy at the University of Tasmania in 2007. She completed her intern year at the Royal Hobart Hospital, gaining experience in many facets of hospital pharmacy. In 2009 Corinne was awarded an Elite Research Scholarship from the University of Tasmania, which allowed her to undertake her PhD research into thromboprophylaxis following hip and knee arthroplasty. She continued part-time at the Royal Hobart Hospital for three years, and now teaches students there in her role as Lecturer in Therapeutics and Pharmacy Practice; a role she has filled for two years. She also continues to practice in community pharmacy.
Corinne's research interests include thromboprophylaxis following hip and knee arthroplasty, vitamin B12 deficiency, the quality use of medicines including drug utilisation evaluations, clinical pharmacy practices, and most recently, translating evidence into practice. She is now also broadening her research interests into nutrition and preventative healthcare.
Current research projects include:
Pharmacist prescribing in community practice: measuring patients' perceptions and self-reported outcomes of pharmacist-led consultations
Faculty Research Theme: Prevention and management of chronic disease
