Patrick Ball graduated in Pharmacy from the University of Aston in Birmingham, UK in 1975 and became a hospital clinical pharmacist. At this time, parenteral nutrition was a rapidly developing technique and Patrick became involved virtually from the outset. In 1979 he joined a multidisciplinary nutrition support team at the Children’s Hospital in Birmingham, and over the next 14 years was involved in a number of innovations including computer applications, clinical trials, development of the team approach, control of line sepsis and occlusion and improving equipment and services for home parenteral nutrition patients. During this time he gained his Master of Science(Birmingham 1986) for a research thesis on computer applications in nutrition support. As a manager he was involved in the wider aspects of hospital pharmacy and worked to increase scholarly practice and practice research in the profession. In 1994 he left the hospitals for his first academic appointment at the University of Otago in Dunedin NZ. At the time he was working on a PhD thesis looking at the effects of dissolved oxygen in parenteral nutrition admixtures (Wales,1997) He has been involved in under and postgraduate pharmacy education and curriculum development and research for 19 years. In 2001 he was recruited to the University of Auckland where he developed a new and novel pharmacotherapy program He likes to characterise his research experience in NZ as ’the art of the possible.’ Research dollars were so scarce he would work in whatever area he was able to secure funds, so a coherent thread was difficult to maintain. In 2005 he was recruited to Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga NSW to become Australia’s Foundation Professor of Rural and Remote Pharmacy which quickly brought him into contact with rural health matters, the ‘top end’ of Australia and Indigenous health issues. This was further developed when he moved in 2013 to Charles Darwin University in Darwin NT. He is interested in both clinical and laboratory research. His clinical research is mainly looking at medication use in chronic disease management particularly in a rural context. His laboratory work is concerned with the behaviour of medications in parenteral fluid systems.
