The annual NSW/ACT Annual Therapeutic Update hits the Hunter Valley this year

Get a head start on your CPD and network with colleagues amongst the picturesque landscapes and world-renowned vineyards of the Hunter Valley at the 2019 NSW/ACT Annual Therapeutic Update (ATU).

The Pharmaceutical Society of Australia (PSA) invites you to catch up with friends and network with colleagues at the ATU from Friday 22 March to Sunday 24 March at the Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley, with a pre-conference program on Thursday 21 March.

Expand your clinical knowledge with the ATU’s robust education program, presented by expert speakers from across the country:

  • Prof Andrew McLachlan AM, Head of School and Dean at the Sydney Pharmacy School, The University of Sydney will discuss anti-psychotics in the aged-care setting.
  • Dr Sarah Wenham, the only Specialist Palliative Care Physician working in rural and remote NSW, will facilitate workshops on palliative care pharmacists.
  • Renal physician and hypertension specialist Prof Markus Schlaich will explore the link between kidneys and hearts, as well as hypertension management.
  • Prof Adrian Dunlop will present a session on courageous conversations about drug and alcohol misuse.

There will be plenty of opportunities to relax, unwind and reconnect with friends and colleagues. The Pharmacists in 2023 Breakfast will kick-start the conference with a discussion about the opportunities being unlocked for pharmacists in the future.

After a long day of learning, let your hair down, take your shoes off and compete in the Wine Olympics, including grape throwing, cork tossing and wine wars.

Finish the ATU on a high note at the Health Leaders Luncheon and find out how new technologies, patient empowerment and longevity will influence the future of healthcare.

The Hunter Valley offers an array of experiences, from hot air ballooning over rolling hills to horseback riding through vineyards. The ATU is a family-friendly conference, so extend your stay with your loved ones to explore the local surrounds and bespoke treasures.
