Dr Jason Chan measured the Patient Enablement Index (PEI) and studied patient, physician and system factors affecting patient enablement in an Asian context. Dr Suriya Prakaash and Dr Goh Zhaojing evaluated elderly patients’ awareness of pneumococcal vaccination and the effects of a brief educational intervention on their attitude towards vaccination. Dr Cheryl Tan assessed the knowledge of Pioneer Generation Package (PGP) benefits and the influence of education of its benefits on the choice of primary care provider. Dr Ng Lai Peng shares her experience of creating an animated video to teach primary care physicians the procedure of IUCD insertion and the assessment of learner acceptability and confidence post-training.

She is currently back to full-time clinical work with the Division of Palliative Medicine at the National Cancer Centre Singapore.
