The closing date is fast approaching for rural and remote pharmacies across Australia to tell the world about their experiences, and why they are so passionate about working in rural and remote areas
The competition is being run as part as part of the #iloveruralpharmacy theme of the Rural Pharmacy Forum at APP2017.
Rural and remote pharmacists are invited to submit a 30-45 second video about work and experiences in their unique pharmacies.
The closing date is February 26, 2017. Prizes will be awarded in the categories of Best Video and People’s Choice.
National President of the Pharmacy Guild of Australia, George Tambassis, says he encourages eligible rural and remote pharmacies to enter the competition.
“This competition gives PHARIA 4-6 pharmacies and their staff the opportunity to share their passion,” Mr Tambassis says.
“We know rural and remote pharmacies have some great stories to tell but often we don’t hear about them.
“This competition gives them the opportunity to share the passion and commitment that is so inspiring to the rest of the profession,” Mr Tambassis says.
“It’s a chance for them to share their passion and spotlight the great work they do. The competition and the #iloveruralpharmacy theme is an opportunity for these pharmacies to use their creativity to promote the spirit and strength of rural pharmacy.”
The winners will be announced at the Rural Pharmacy Forum session at APP2017 on Thursday 9 March 2017. The two prizes are a full registration to APP2018 and a year’s subscription to GuildCare software for the pharmacy.
Best Video will be judged prior to APP2017, and a shortlist will be revealed for the People’s Choice award, which will be judged by the audience at the Rural Pharmacy Forum session. The Best Video will have a choice of prize, with the other prize going to the People’s Choice winner.
To be eligible for the competition, entrants must be an employee or an owner of a PhARIA 4-6 pharmacy. Eligibility will be confirmed before prizes are awarded.
