College of Pharmacy research themes


Research summary

The goal of Dr. Falk’s research program is to evaluate treatment and testing patterns in chronic disease management, focusing on diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and chronic pain, as well as acute antibiotic and opioid use.

The ultimate aim of this program is to influence prescribing patterns toward optimized care through minimized patient burden. To achieve this, Dr. Falk’s program collaborates with researchers within the college and broader Rady Faculty of Health Sciences to capitalize on the province’s rich databases, targeting key stakeholder clinicians, scientists, and policy makers. These aims are further enhanced with evidence-based medicine translation activities through organization of the Medication, Evidence, and Decision Support (MEDS) conference and the development of systematic reviews and guidelines as part of the national PEER Project Team.


Dr. Falk is an associate professor at the College of Pharmacy with a cross appointment to the department of family medicine. He is the clinical stream lead for the College of Pharmacy curriculum and assessment committee and is a research affiliate with the Centre on Aging, University of Manitoba. He is the chair of the Medication, Evidence, and Decision Support (MEDS) Conference and is a PEER Project Team member.
