NAPSA and PDL have renewed their partnership in a move expected to help students better understand risk minimisation
The National Australian Pharmacy Students’ Association (NAPSA) says it is pleased to announce that it has renewed its Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Pharmaceutical Defence Limited (PDL).
PDL, a not-for-profit organisation run by pharmacists and dedicated to supporting more than 29,000 members including students and interns, will provide students and interns with education on risk minimisation and free PDL membership
By doing so, PDL says it aims to advance the professionalism of NAPSA members and develop awareness of risk minimisation strategies.
NAPSA National President, Verity Boustead, said that, “The strong working relationship between NAPSA and PDL ensures that NAPSA members receive professional support and advice throughout their pharmacy student journey and inaugural years as a pharmacist”.
PDL CEO, David Brown, said that, “We are thrilled to renew our long-standing partnership with NAPSA and continue to support our next generation of pharmacists with advice and risk minimisation strategies for their careers”.
NAPSA and PDL say they are both proud to announce that this MoU includes the PDL Student Grant Program, which provides assistance to selected individual pharmacy students to attend a recognised conference or event and enhance their education and training as a future pharmacist.
“Our vision is that this partnership will continue to provide our members with opportunities to advance their professional development through leadership, advocacy and support offered by PDL,” said Miss Boustead.
