PD breaking news – PSA Excellence Awards announced

Lindy Swain picks up Pharmacist of the Year. 

The Pharmaceutical Society of Australia (PSA) has announced its Excellence Awards for the year at the Pharmacy Australia Congress 2014.

Bullinah Aboriginal Health Service clinical pharmacist Lindy Swain was named PSA Pharmacist of the Year 2014 for her work as a clinician, innovator, teacher and researcher in rural areas, and in particular, for her work in improving health outcomes of Indigenous Australians, the PSA said.

Monash University honourary Associate Professor of Pharmacy Louis Roller received the PSA Lifetime Achievement Award.

Roller was recognised as one of the profession’s most effective and passionate advocates, who had influenced the profession through the development of a patient-focused pharmacy course, the PSA said.

The organisation said the Associate Professor had been a driver in developing Quality Use of Medicines standards and in recognising the velu of pharmacist, GP and patient partnerships.

NSW rural pharmacist Taren Gill was named PSA Young Pharmacist of the Year, for her work as a community pharmacist and innovator in the practice, the PSA said.

The award also recognised Gill’s aged care work, university mentoring and teaching, and her commitment to quality program development, it said.
