Researchers: Dr Ruth Webster (Principal investigator)

Brief description My PhD research showed that placing several heart protection drugs into one pill helped many more people take these drugs. I am now looking at the best way to use ‘polypills’ in ‘real-life’. I will identify what is preventing use of polypills, in a country where they are currently available. I will examine new strategies that promote identifying patients who are eligible for polypills. I will also investigate whether the same concept can be used to improve blood pressure control.
