Karen Thrift is the GP Liaison Officer for the RELEASE project. From 2013-2022 Karen was an Educational Visitor with NPS MedicineWise, providing educational outreach in primary care on quality use of medicines and medical tests. Her background as a Hospital Scientist in Transfusion Medicine and working in both the NSW Health and WA Health departments in Health Policy and Models of Care lead her to be interested in primary care and how we can reduce harms and improve outcomes for patients by providing support, resources and education to health professionals working in primary care.
