Were things really better in the old days?


To mark the 90th anniversary of the Pharmacy Guild this year, its flagship conference will host a debate on whether things were better in the old days

The “good old-fashioned debate” will take place on Saturday, 5 May at 3.30pm in the main arena.

There will be two three-member teams of prominent pharmacists and pharmacy figures, namely: Toni Riley, John Bronger, Natalie Willis, Wendy Phillips, Trent Twomey, and Catherine Bronger.

The debate will be moderated by Guild communications advisor Greg Turnbull.

“Implicitly, the title is ‘Things (in community pharmacy) were better in the old days’ – but speakers are not restricted in any way as to how they interpret the subject,” Mr Turnbull says.

“The only requirements will be to stick to the time limits, and avoid anything bland at all costs.”

The debate will also involve audience participation, with the winning side of the debate determined through the use of the APP mobile app.

APP is taking place from 3-6 May at the Gold Coast Convention & Exhibition Centre.  For program information or to register, visit http://appconference.com/.
