Clinical pharmacist (emergency medicine and paediatrics)
Box Hill Hospital
Bachelor of Pharmacy (Honours) 2002
During my university studies, I worked in a community pharmacy, but I completed my internship in a hospital and enjoyed it so much – I stayed.
It's my responsibility to record a medication history of emergency department patients. I advise patients on the best use of medicines and counsel them about new or changed medicines, working as part of a team that includes medical, nursing and allied health staff.
I also look after paediatric patients. This is challenging, as children and neonates require different treatment to adults.
