Logan Hospital pharmacists embark on exciting opportunity

18 May 2017

Three Logan Hospital pharmacists have been chosen to embark on an exciting new opportunity which promises to transform and advance Australia’s pharmacy workforce.

Pharmacist Clinical Educator Lee House said Karla Mayfield, Martin Wong and Jackie Trieu would participate in the Pharmacy Residency Program which aimed to ensure pharmacists continued to provide the best possible care for patients in an evolving health care environment.

Lee said the national program provided a structured, supported and accredited two year residency for pharmacists in their foundation years.

“Although routine in various other countries like the USA, the UK and Singapore, this marks a landmark development for Australian pharmacists,” Lee said.

Logan Hospital’s Pharmacy Department was one of 24 Australian sites granted provisional accreditation as a Pharmacy Residency Program Site at the beginning of November 2016.
