My research investigates medication errors among healthcare providers and the gerontology of geriatric patients.
I explore the internal - cognitive and behavioural aspects of medication error and the external - polypharmacy, pharmacokinetic processes, misuse, disturbances and interruptions among healthcare providers and elderly patients.
The aim of my research is to examine the practical and theoretical underpinnings of medication errors and to analyse well-being of patients and healthcare providers after complications.
My research also seeks to investigate approaches to supporting patients and healthcare providers in the reduction of medication errors thus increasing patient safety.
