PPP068 - Two Quality Projects with Dr Simone Taylor and Amy McRae
We caught up with Dr Simone Taylor from Austin Health and Amy McRae from Alfred Health about their work. Both Simone and Amy had projects featured in the “Time To Shine” session at last year’s SHPA Medicines Management Conference.
Amy’s paper is titled “Collaboration Between Healthcare and Industry to Improve the Safety of Neuromuscular Blocking Agents in Australia”. It describes an initiative to improve the packaging and labelling of these high-risk medicines.
Simone’s paper is titled “Emergency Department Screening Tools to Assist Pharmacists Targeting Patients at Risk For Medication Related Problems”. It describes the development of a tool to help pharmacists to identify patients who are at highest risk and would benefit most from pharmacist intervention.
