Teaching Responsibilities

Mr Connolly commenced teaching at the School of Pharmacy in 2005, and is now Lecturer in Clinical Pharmacy. He teaches predominantly clinical practice knowledge and skills based around a hospital setting, linking these closely with therapeutic knowledge and application to the clinical setting. Key to this is the ability to identify, prioritise and resolve medication related problems. He is also heavily involved in the School's clinical rounds on-site at the Royal Hobart Hospital and the co-ordination and deliver of clinical placements at this Hospital.

Projects

Improving clinical outcomes by increasing concordance with antibiotic guidelines for Community Acquired Pneumonia (CAP). (2014)$59,250
Description
CAP leads to 60,000 hospital admissions in Australia annually and 3,000 deaths. Compliance with CAP guidelines is known to be low in Royal Hobart Hospital (RHH). UTAS and RHH have been developing guidelines, clinical pathways for emergency doctors and education for professionals about the pathway and the guidelines. Mortality rates at RHH have come down significantly since the UTAS and RHH work. Research will implement the RHH known strategy into the other Tasmanian Health Organisations (THOs). Educational components will improve the knowledge of the clinical workforce re optimal use of antibiotics in the management of CAP.
