Dr Lisa Nissen is an enthusiastic, committed, approachable and very effective teacher and an outstanding role model to students and those in the profession.

Lisa frequently draws on her research and experiences in hospital and community pharmacy to inform her teaching, with very positive feedback from the students. She has successfully redesigned the teaching of pharmacoeconomics to make it more relevant and interesting for students, and has introduced electronic placement diaries through Blackboard, giving students early access to feedback on their reflective cases and log books.

Her involvement early in her professional career in multidisciplinary teams and varied practice environments has nurtured a strong interest in interdisciplinary education. Students are encouraged through the use of inter-professional cases to better appreciate their roles and those of other health professionals in patient care, an approach that is seen as fundamental to the future of health professional development.

Lisa is involved in a considerable amount of external teaching through continuing education to the profession and community organisations. She lectures into pharmacy programs at other universities and is regularly invited to speak at professional conferences and workshops. She has held various positions with the Society of Hospital Pharmacists of Australia and the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia, and was awarded the prestigious “Young Australian Pharmacist of the Year” in 2002.
