Areas of Interest:

Sophie received her degree in Pharmacy at the University of Reading and has returned to complete a PhD in pharmacy practice as well as being a part-time teaching support staff. Sophie's research interest focuses on investigating the practices surrounding the co-administration of multiple intravenous medicines down the same line in intensive care units.

The treatment of patients within hospital is a complicated process and can involve the administration of multiple medicines at the same time directly into the bloodstream intravenously. This is not without risks especially since there is little known about whether certain medicines can be mixed together. Sophie's research project aims to examine the process involved in co-administering multiple medicines down the same IV line on hospital wards, how widespread the practice is and to explore the benefit of using nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) to find out if mixtures of two or more drugs can be safely used. The outcomes of the project will be to inform the hospital Trust about how often medicines are administered down the same IV line together, what drug combinations would be considered safe and suitable for administration this way, and if there is a need to better regulate how this is done. The ultimate aim is to improve patient safety and reduce the chance of harm to patients.
