Research Themes

Dr Hoyle's research aligns with the University’s theme of Better Health. His research interests include medication management in older people. In particular, Dr Hoyle recently investigated the clinical and economic impact that antipsychotic and benzodiazepine reduction has on residents of aged care facilities involved in a nationwide project (the Reducing Use of Sedatives project; RedUSe).Dr Hoyle also has interests in Alzheimer’s disease related-research where he completed a project to assess the chemical changes in the brain associated with Alzheimer’s. Given the novel findings, Dr Hoyle has since expanded his research through work with the Australian Synchrotron.
