PSA congratulates and welcomes productive relationship with new RACGP President
The Pharmaceutical Society of Australia (PSA) congratulates Dr Karen Price who has been elected President of the Royal Australian College of General Practioners (RACG).
PSA National President Associate Professor Chris Freeman said he was looking forward to working with Dr Price to improve how pharmacists and GPs can work together going forward.
“A collaborative approach between pharmacists and GPs is needed now more than ever to focus on patient outcomes and impacts rather than attempts to undermine one another,” he said.
“Dr Price has indicated a collaborative approach with other healthcare groups is important to provide a united force in dealing with government and I could not agree more with this statement.
“Pharmacists remain ready and willing to work with GPs to improve patient outcomes and although we will not always agree, it is important to work together wherever possible.
“I congratulate Dr Price on her appointment and look forward to a positive and productive relationship going forward.”
Dr Price will assume her position at the close of the RACGP’s Annual General Meeting on 30 November 2020.
