Bachelor of Pharmacy (University Adelaide), AACPA accredited pharmacist.
I have worked for over 35 years in community pharmacy. I have extensive experience working in aged care and have worked as the consultant pharmacist for Dementia Behaviour Management Advisory Service, Alzheimer’s SA for 8 years.
My role is to provide clinical advice about medicines to the GPs, nurses and patients at the clinic or in the patient’s home when doing a Home Medicine Review. In addition to medication management, I am available for patient education in the clinic one morning a week.
I was named SA Pharmacist of the Year 2012 for my involvement in improving health outcomes for people living with dementia and for my significant contribution to the pharmacy profession.
