We take a look at upcoming events for pharmacists

PSA17 is the ‘must-attend’ global conference for pharmacists.

More than 50 presenters, including international speakers and experts, will discuss major pharmacy issues at PSA17, the flagship annual conference for the peak national body for pharmacists, the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia (PSA).

To showcase the three-day global conference in Sydney – embracing the popular theme of Leading Pharmacy Innovation – PSA has also launched a new conference website.

PSA is delighted to partner with the Commonwealth Pharmacists Association (CPA) to jointly host the PSA17 conference at one of Sydney’s premier convention spaces, the newly-refurbished Hyatt Regency at Darling Harbour (formerly Four Points by Sheraton).

An impressive line-up of local and international speakers will debate the most significant issues currently facing pharmacists and pharmacy, including:

  • The international antimicrobial resistance challenge: the roles of pharmacists
  • Medicinal cannabis
  • Women in leadership: Australian and global leadership
  • Health Destination Pharmacy: Sharing stories of success.

PSA’s Early Career Pharmacist (ECP) National Board Director Taren Gill said PSA17 is shaping up to be another must-attend event to help build a positive future for the profession.

“We’ve built on all of the positive feedback we received from PSA16 – especially from ECPs – to ensure the 2017 conference will be bigger and better than ever,” Ms Gill said.  “Partnering with CPA also provides a unique opportunity to network with pharmacists and other ECPs from all over the Commonwealth.”

A number of engaging social events have been arranged for delegates – including visitors from leading Commonwealth nations – to network and discuss key healthcare issues.

PSA National President Joe Demarte said PSA was delighted to partner with the CPA, which has members from the Commonwealth of Nations throughout Europe, Africa, Asia, the Americas and the Pacific.

“This joint conference will be a fantastic opportunity to highlight and discuss key issues affecting pharmacists in Australia and right across the Commonwealth, giving it a truly global perspective,” Mr Demarte said.

A limited amount of early bird tickets are available from the PSA17 website.
