GREEN CROSS HEALTH – INNOVATION IN DELIVERING PEOPLE CENTRED CARE AND ADVICE
As a passionate supporter of community pharmacists, Green Cross Health is proud to sponsor this award which recognises your innovation, creativity and uniqueness in delivering on a care and advice philosophy. Stand out achievements could include new services, how you have developed your pharmacy offering to suit the needs of your community, or the use of technology to drive people centred care.
2017Working in a shared facility with a group of general practice staff, Diana Phone and the Waimaukau Village Pharmacy team, sought to improve medicine adherence in their rapidly growing and aging community. With the Pharmacy Action Plan and the New Zealand Health Strategy guiding their approach, this team redesigned how they delivered care. A stunning entry.
2016Mark Webster's knowledge of pharmaceuticals, together with his training in naturopathic systems through the Stay Well way and his professional connections with integrative medical practitioners, has put the patient at the centre of the consultation process.
The Holistic Integrative Care in a Pharmacy Setting project aims to put the pharmacist in a core holistic role with patient wellness.
2015Martin Harris, from Massey Unichem Pharmacy, is focused on complementary medicines and nutrition. He not only delivers outstanding care and advice to his own patients, but is upskilling other pharmacists to do the same through his unique course, Nutrition Medicine in Pharmacy.
2014For the second year running, Colin French from Unichem Arrowtown Pharmacy took out this award. He created an automated system around wholesaler price and subsidy changes to his stock to ensure this valuable information was not overlooked. Colin learnt a programming language, rewrote the code step-by-step until the entire database he collated was in the Toniq system.
