This research is investigating the role of the pharmacist in a humanitarian crisis by identifying the role of pharmacists in medicine management and general healthcare during disasters, both within Australia and abroad.

This research has the potential to create new roles for pharmacists in the pharmacy profession, with the prospective need for pharmacists to take on more responsibilities during humanitarian crises. This research will be able to identify areas where pharmacists can assist the multidisciplinary healthcare teams in disaster situations.
