Curtin lecturers excel at Pharmaceutical Society of WA Awards

Posted: 14 May 2014

Curtin University lecturers from the School of Pharmacy have been awarded the Pharmaceutical Society of Western Australia’s Five Star Teaching Pharmacist award.

The award recognises the enormous number of pharmacists doing work for the profession and for the public which goes largely unrewarded. It publically recognises those that are making a real difference.

Ms Shelley Appleton was recognised as the Star Teaching Pharmacist for her significant contribution to enhancing the quality of learning and education. She has been described as teaching with patience, good humour, with the ability to inspire excellence.

Mrs Sue White was recognised as the Star Communicator Pharmacist for her outstanding communication skills and high-level writing skills. She has been described as being able to change her approach to suit the many varied situations that she encounters, whilst still remaining friendly, professional and engaging.

Professor Jeff Hughes, Head of the School of Pharmacy, said that he was proud of the pharmacy team, as members of staff had been recognised in this award category for the last few years.

“It’s great to see Curtin lecturers recognised for the great work they are undertaking in the pharmacy arena,” Professor Hughes said.

“Both Shelley and Sue are both natural teachers and high achievers. I congratulate both of them on receiving this prestigious award.”
