Improving global prehospital and emergency medicine, public health, and disaster health care and preparedness

Elizabeth McCourt

Elizabeth (Libby) is a Research Manager and Clinical Pharmacist at Queensland Health. Dr. McCourt’s PhD examined the preparedness of pharmacists for disasters and emergencies in Australia. In March 2017, she was deployed in the aftermath of Cyclone Debbie where she saw firsthand the challenges that health professionals and patients face during times of crisis. This has led to her research interests in disaster preparedness, pharmacy practice in disasters, and bridging the gap between primary and hospital care during a disaster.
