Name:
Miss Kate Fletcher
Job Title:
Lecturer in Pharmacy
Responsibilities:
Convener of Pharmacy Practice Part 1 (PM1PP1); Tutor for Experiential Learning (including Inter-Professional Learning & Patient Public Involvement)
Areas of Interest:

Since qualifying as a pharmacist in 1995, I have worked in hospital pharmacy, including 4 years in a London teaching trust and 3 years at the Radcliffe Infirmary in Oxford, where I specialised in neurosurgery, neuro-intensive care and geratology. At the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading I have been Lead Pharmacist for General Surgery, and am currently Lead Pharmacist for Head & Neck Surgery (including Ear, Nose and Throat, and Ophthalmology), and Gynaecology.

I have been involved with teaching nurses, doctors and junior pharmacists for the past 17 years and have been a pre-registration pharmacist tutor for 8 years, tutoring individual trainees and taking part in delivery of the Thames Valley Regional Programme for Pre-Registration Pharmacists.

I joined the Pharmacy Practice team in the Autumn of 2005 and have been involved in the development of the MPharm programme ever since. During this time I have convened a Part 4 module, Integrated Care, and introduced Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCEs) to the School's range of assessment methods. Currently I convene a Part 1 module, introducing Pharmacy Practice to our new students, including dispensing and communication skills, law & ethics. I am also Tutor for Experiential Learning, supporting and developing our practice placement portfolio.

In 2007 I was involved in writing several chapters of a text book, "Foundation in Pharmacy Practice", along with 4 of my colleagues; the book was published in June 2008 and is one of the core text books for the first year of the Pharmacy Practice course.

In 2008 I became a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

My research interests lie in Pharmacy Education and the use of technology in Pharmacy Education, and I have several on-going projects investigating the benefits of various teaching methods, and use of audio-visual materials to enhance our teaching, funded by an internal grant awarded by the University's Teaching and Learning Development Fund
