Keaton Harris and Saajida Momath won the Clinical skills competition where they analysed a patient case scenario with a diagnosis of schizophrenia. Keaton Harris also won the Patient Counselling competition where he analysed a prescription containing two types of asthma inhalers (budesonide and salbutamol) and in a role-play engaged with a resistant 6 year old patient on how to utilize them with a delivery device (spacer) to optimize therapeutic outcome. Keaton Harris was also awarded the Nic Scheeper Memorial award for his sterling performance at the congress.
