Sue Ward

Founder & Principal Pharmacist

A passion for outstanding patient care was the foundation upon which Sue Ward founded Ward Medication Management in 1997.  Not content with an archaic system of simply writing additional medication notes on patients’ charts, Sue created the first QUM reporting service, with clear quality indicators to help healthcare practitioners strive for excellence. Aged care facilities that have adopted her revolutionary CPR program have achieved 100% accreditation compliance.  Sue is highly respected, her legislation experience in aged care is second to none, and when she isn’t helping aged care facilities improve their medication management she loves spending time with her family and playing with her dog Pascal.
