Professor Jeff Hughes has been awarded the 2014 Australasian Pharmaceutical Sciences Association (APSA) Medal, the highest accolade in pharmaceutical sciences and pharmacy practice.
National President of the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia (PSA) Grant Kardachi, said Professor Hughes is a leading figure in developing and implementing innovation in pharmacy practice.
“This APSA Medal joins other prestigious awards Professor Hughes has won, including Pharmacist of the Year in the PSA Excellence Awards.”
Mr Kardachi said Professor Hughes had built a global reputation for his commitment to teaching and learning and has published more than 200 research and professional papers and contributed to 17 books.
“I know that he puts great value on ensuring there is a strong and targeted focus on evidence-based teaching for undergraduates, postgraduates and practitioners in pharmacy and other allied disciplines,” Mr Kardachi said.
“He brings that commitment to the Board of PSA where his insight and input is helping the Society establish career and practice pathways for pharmacists.
“As the pharmacy environment changes, it is critical that we develop these pathways so that pharmacists have a sustainable and viable future, and Professor Hughes’ experience and innovative thinking are fundamental to this process.”
