Centre for Remote Health and Alice Springs Hospital pharmacy student project

Pharmacy Student Project

Kellie Stafford, a final year pharmacy student from University of Queensland on placement in Alice Springs, is undertaking a project to investigate antibiotic usage in infants at Alice Springs Hospital (ASH).

The project, involving ASH pharmacy department and Centre for Remote Health Pharmacy Academic, will assess the use of Gentamicin, an antibiotic, in neonatal patients in line with recommended guidelines and therapeutic drug monitoring.

The student project has the potential to benefit the Central Australian population though assessing whether current practice is appropriate and whether a change in practice is necessary.
