Recognising pharmacist innovation

Nominations are now underway for the UTS Innovative Pharmacist of the Year award

Nominations are now being accepted for the 2021 UTS Innovative Pharmacist of the Year award, supported by the AJP.

First presented in 2012, the award recognises those in the profession who are redefining pharmacy.

Last year’s award was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In 2019, the award recognised Bradley Butt, managing partner at Cooleman Court Pharmacy, for his work as the founder and lead pharmacist of Men’s Health Downunder, a pharmacist-led program launched in 2013 that support male urological health.

The process is quick and easy and judged on five criteria:

  1. Originality—what new concepts on existing ideas have been developed?
  2. Impact—is the concept or variation a fundamental change to common practice, or a minor development?
  3. Practicality—are the innovations easily integrated into existing practice?
  4. Measurable benefits—has the innovation increased revenue, efficiencies or cost savings?
  5. Applicability—can the innovative practice be easily adapted by other pharmacists?

The closing date for nominations is 10 October 2021. The award will be presented at the annual UTS Pharmacy Dinner in early November.
