Hannah Family Brain Templates

Dr. Hannah Family is a chartered psychologist, and one of only two psychologists nationally working full-time in pharmacy research and teaching. She has two broad areas of research interest. The first looks at patient safety in a pharmacy context specifically, how the mental pressures and workload that pharmacists experience (their mental workload) might contribute to errors in the preparation and dispensing of medicines. The second explores how pharmacists might help people to engage with healthy behaviours. Across her research, Hannah explores the interrelationships, dynamics and tensions that arise between healthcare provision and the business model within which pharmacies operate.
