GCUH Unit Co-ordinator

 

Paulina completed her Bachelor of Pharmacy with first class Honours at Monash University and completed her internship in community pharmacy. She has also completed a Graduate Certificate of Pharmacy Practice and a PhD at Monash University. Her thesis, “A needs-based approach to patient-relevant information delivery”, focused on the delivery of evidence-based practice guidelines to clinicians in timely and patient-centred way. Before moving to Bond, Paulina held an Associate Lecture Teaching Fellow position coordinating the Clinical Placements program for both Master and Bachelor of Pharmacy students at the University of Sydney, involving over 600 students and 400 placement sites.

Paulina has extensive teaching experience, teaching in multiple tertiary education institutions, university colleges, and privately. She is passionate about education and believes in not only teaching the subject at hand, but to exciting students in the process of learning; of wanting to know not only what, but more importantly how and why.

Paulina’s teaching interests include critical thinking and logic, mathematics, pharmacokinetics, pharmacy practice, and science and evidence based medicine. She has developed several innovative inter-professional and simulation based tutorials and workshops for nursing, medical, and pharmacy students, and was awarded an Education Innovation Grant to develop a software that teaches users to take a best possible medication history.

Paulina currently coordinates the EBP Professorial unit and still practices part-time in community pharmacy. Her research interests include pharmacy practice and pharmacy services, health professional education and training, gamification in education and health informatics.
