His most recent research project in this area explores gathering physicians’ perceptions on the implementability of a communication tool that is designed to help clinicians’ communication with patients on this topic. In other research projects, he has used theory-guided qualitative research, simulated client studies as well as surveys to identify factors associated with the injudicious dispensing of antibiotics in developing countries. Dr. Amin’s research also addresses issues related to counselling women on oral contraceptives along with different barriers and facilitators that impact the quality of their counselling.
