QUMPRC specialises in improving use of medicines.

Research within the Centre ranges from large-scale data analysis, to the translation of evidence into policy and practice.

We work with consumers, health professionals and organisations, ensuring the advanced technologies and methods developed within the centre, find their way into policy and practice to improve patient lives.

Our research focuses on 6 key areas: medicines safety, optimising medicine use, digital health, pharmacy practice, Aboriginal traditional medicines, and evidence translation and policy.
