Dr Shereen Nabhani-Gebara

Senior Lecturer- Interprofessional Education Lead

About

I am an oncology pharmacist with a vision that technology is a powerful enabler for patient care and this has shaped my research and scholarship contributions. I am currently a senior lecturer in pharmacy and has a significant track record in securing funding and in harnessing a strong collaborative network nationally and internationally.

 This has resulted in successful research projects (as PI and co-PI) funded by the EU  FP7, H2020 and Innovate UK among others.

Research

Technology Enabled Care

My research expertise includes the use of telehealth/mobile health to promote personalised management of long term conditions. This work has led to the design and development of virtual support systems to support cancer patients. The design and development were guided by in depth needs assessment conducted via a mixed method approach of quantitative and qualitative research tools.My research expertise revolves around studying healthcare/organisational needs for the implementation of innovation and the evaluation of such interventions.

Cancer care

Improving cancer care is at the heart of my research and scholarly endeavours. This includes the study of ambulatory chemotherapy nationally and internationally evaluating the performance and pharmacoeconomics of elastomeric pumps, conducting stability indicating assay methods (HPLC, LCMS and NMR analysis) to streamline the preparation and delivery of chemotherapeutic agents and designing smart systems to improve ambulatory chemotherapy. 

In order to support academic research in oncology and to maintain the safety of researchers and staff in University settings. I have led the development of the guidance for the safe handling of cytotoxics in academic research labs.

Interprofessional Education

I am a firm believer in harnessing the untapped potential of pharmacists through supporting the extended role of pharmacists in general practice and in community cancer care. This can only be achieved through strengthening interprofessional relationships and communication.
