Congratulations to Avril Lee, member of the Health Quality & Safety Commission’s medication safety expert advisory group on her awards at the recent SingHealth Education Conference held in Singapore.
The conference took place at the Academia where collaborative learning across different teams and disciplines draws on the strengths and best practices of others and helps make new discoveries in medicine to advance patient care. This year’s conference was aptly themed 'Best Practices in Health Professions Education – Challenges and Opportunities'.
The work of Avril Lee and the co-authors was recognised in two areas of innovative medical education:
Congratulations to Avril, the co-authors, Waitemata DHB and the University of Auckland Medical School for taking home first and second prizes and receiving international recognition in these innovative approaches in medical education. We understand there was much interest expressed by the judging panel in how this work could be spread and scaled nationally.
Well done Avril and the team and we hope this work inspires other pharmacists to engage in inter-professional medical education opportunities across New Zealand.
