Staff Profile:Dr Rosemary Lim

Name:
Dr Rosemary Lim
Job Title:
Associate Professor
Responsibilities:
  • Module convenor for Delivering Pharmacy Services 1 (PM2D)
  • University Research and Ethics Committee member
  • Health Humanities Research Centre steering committee member
  • Main Teaching: MPharm Programme (including PM1C, PM2D, PM3C, PM4A and PM4B)
Areas of Interest:

My research is about enhancing and creating safe use of medications in healthcare settings and peoples' homes. Informed by my experience and training in pharmacy and human factors, I lead and collaborate in research on medication management in dementia, insulin infusions and antimicrobial resistance.

My work is largely collaborative, interdisciplinary and co-produced with users, an approach that I believe is key to generating meaningful and sustainable impact in applied research. A range of competitive funders including the Wellcome Trust, Arts and Humanities Research Council, Global Challenges Research Fund pump-priming funds, fund my recent and current research.

Research highlights include:

  • Medication safety in care homes: systems analysis of the medication system, developed a new method to analyse medication errors, error analysis.
  • Methodological development:                                                                                              1. Prospective Hazard Analysis - developed a toolkit of methods suitable for use in healthcare    2. Cognitive Work Analysis - application of methodology in care homes and in-patient diabetes management                                                                                                                               3. Video-reflexive Ethnography - part of a wider feasibility study to explore Resilient Healthcare in a hospital in-patient setting on the use of intravenous insulin infusions
  • Medication management in dementia: peoples' experiences of managing medication in dementia at home, wider systems issues
  • Antimicrobial resistance: the development of a UK antimicrobial stewardship framework for undergraduate healthcare students, developing, implementing and evaluating healthcare interventions to improve antibiotic prescribing by non-medical prescribers and designing and communicating antimicrobial resistance messages to community pharmacy users in the UK (https://amrpharmacy.org) and in a Rwandan setting.
