THE Pharmaceutical Society of Australia (PSA) has announced that more than 50 international and local presenters will discuss major pharmacy issues at PSA17, its flagship annual conference set for 28-30 July.
To showcase the three-day global conference in Sydney, with the theme of Leading Pharmacy Innovation, PSA has also launched a new website at psa17.com where the program, cost and accommodation details are available.
PSA will partner with the Commonwealth Pharmacists Association (CPA) to jointly host the PSA17 conference, which will be held at the same venue as last year’s event, the newly-refurbished Hyatt Regency at Darling Harbour (formerly Four Points by Sheraton).
Key topics of relevance to pharmacy business in Australia will be addressed, including the roles of pharmacists with relation to the international antimicrobial resistance challenge, medicinal cannabis, women in leadership both in Australia and globally, and the PSA’s and Health Destination Pharmacy concept.
PSA’s Early Career Pharmacist (ECP) National Board Director Taren Gill said, “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”.
“Partnering with CPA also provides a unique opportunity to network with pharmacists and other ECPs from all over the Commonwealth,” she added.
