The Unit for Medication Outcomes Research and Education (UMORE) is located within Pharmacy in the College of Health and Medicine at the University of Tasmania's (UTAS) Sandy Bay Campus.
UMORE aims to see improved community health as a result of our research, and we promote the practical application of our project findings in a range of health areas.
Working in collaboration with doctors, patients, health care organisations and academic institutions, we research ways to assess and enhance the quality use of medicines and patient health outcomes.
UMORE provides services in pharmacy practice and quality use of medicines – we offer research and consultancy, and education and training services.
UMORE was established in 2002 as the School's applied clinical pharmacy research arm. As well as highly skilled research pharmacists, our staff include IT specialists and psychologists, providing a strong and versatile research and development team.
We are internationally recognised as a leader in collaborative research and education, and our areas of expertise are health informatics, anticoagulants, medication reviews, chronic disease management and quality use of medicines.
We collaborate with professional organisations and agencies, other universities, health professionals, health and information system specialists and the pharmaceutical, diagnostics and IT industries.
The primary focus of our research is to contribute to improved patient health outcomes within the community.
