For many years the Editorial Executive Committee of Australian Prescriber has provided the opportunity for advanced trainees in clinical pharmacology to participate in editorial meetings. In 2009 the editorial registrar was Dr Darren Roberts. During that year Darren took on the task of preparing an article on the challenging topic of renal bone disease.
In 2014 (now) Associate Professor Roberts was invited to join the Editorial Executive Committee as a full member. Since then he has contributed several editorials and articles to Australian Prescriber and has again been willing to tackle challenging topics such as the rescheduling of codeine and, more recently, the impact of COVID-19 on the quality use of medicines.
Associate Professor Roberts became the Chair of the Editorial Executive Committee in 2017. During his tenure Darren has used his experience of the process to help the recent registrars complete their own papers for publication.
The Editorial Executive Committee thanks Associate Professor Roberts for his long-term commitment to Australian Prescriber.
