Personal profile


Dr Kenneth Lee is a Senior Lecturer in Pharmacy Practice, a clinician, and a biostatistician. He has a passion for integrating research, teaching, and practice.

Dr Lee has experience with leading and designing mixed methods, quantitative, and qualitative research projects, and has secured over $1.5 million in competitive research funding as a Chief Investigator.

Dr Lee's research interests are inspired by his experience as a clinician and a desire for improving the status quo of patient care through better delivery of health services.

Dr Lee's research aim to collectively:
    1) improve pharmacy practice; and
    2) support patient self-efficacy.

Specifically, Dr Lee is interested in improving the quality of service delivery by pharmacists in primary care settings and supporting patient self-efficacy through addressing issues such as limited eHealth/health literacy, help-avoidance behaviours, and information overload.

Dr Lee co-founded and co-leads a national research group (COHERENT) that supports consultant pharmacists' service delivery.

As a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, Dr Lee is an internationally-recognised leader in tertiary teaching. His teaching philosophy revolves around supporting student self-efficacy through engagement in the subject matter and creating contemporary, authentic learning experiences.

Dr Lee's teaching practices are underpinned by evidence-based pedagogy and contemporary teaching methods, and he utilises a growing suite of digital tools to increase 'classroom' interactivity and student buy-in.

Clinical Practice
Dr Lee is a nationally-recognised and award winning clinician. In 2021, Dr Lee was awarded Fellow of the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia for his sustained and outstanding contribution to the profession of pharmacy.

As a clinician, Dr Lee works in a large medical centre as an in-house clinical pharmacist, and in private consultancy, where he primarily delivers comprehensive medication management review services to domiciliary patients.
