Preliminary Research Project Proposal

Tips for Improving Disposal of Your Unused Pills & Potions Safely (TIDY-UPS)

Like Comment

The focus of the research project I am undertaking, "TIDY-UPS", will be on exploring household medication waste practices and behaviours within Ireland. Through this I will collaborate with pharmacy and psychology to identify target behaviour change opportunities which may have environmental, financial and health safety benefits. I wish to inform better strategies for future interventions for regulatory bodies in dealing with medication waste management.
