Adrian Agius worked on a study looking at the implementation of faecal occult blood point-of-care testing in community pharmacies for the detection of colorectal cancer. Marie Claire Aquilina’s dissertation looked at a pharmacist’s intervention in a heart failure clinic, while Anne Marie Mercieca looked at the quality of life in hypertensive dialysis patients.
