Personal profile

Particulars

Heather Barry graduated from Queen’s University Belfast with a First Class Honours degree in Pharmacy in 2006, and a PhD in Pharmacy Practice in 2012. She subsequently held post-doctoral positions at the University of Exeter Medical School (2012-2014) and Queen's University Belfast (2014-2017). She was appointed to a Lectureship in Pharmacy Practice in August 2017.

Dr Barry is a member of the Pharmaceutical Society of Northern Ireland and the Royal Pharmaceutical Society, and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

Research Interests

Dr Barry is experienced in both quantitative and qualitative methods of research. Her research interests lie in service delivery and organisation of care within the primary care setting, with a focus on care of older people (particularly those with dementia and frailty), prescribing and medicines management. The primary care landscape is changing, linked to an ageing population, increasing numbers of people with multiple long-term conditions, declining patient satisfaction with access to services, and workforce issues. Dr Barry is particularly interested in how pharmacists can be utilised more widely in order to meet the increasing pressures and challenges within general practice and primary care.

Teaching

Dr Barry has experience of teaching both pharmacy and medicine undergraduate students. She has also delivered regional workshops and courses to pharmacists on behalf of the Northern Ireland Centre for Pharmacy Learning & Development (NICPLD).
