Overview

Ownership aspirations? Let’s get the fundamentals right!

Often the notion of pharmacy ownership is daunting:

  • Where do I start?
  • What does the process look like?
  • Who needs to be involved?
  • Am I making the right business decision for me?

This one-day practical workshop is brought to you by The Pharmaceutical Society of Australia and the Pharmacy Guild of Australia exclusively for PSA and Guild members. It aims to demystify and equip pharmacists with the right information, skills and business foundation in making an informed decision to purchase a pharmacy.

An insightful pharmacy ownership workshop:

  • Covering business basics for pharmacy and the pathway to purchasing a pharmacy.
  • Reinforcing your learnings by a series of group activities with real life applications.
  • Facilitated by expert speakers in accounting, finance and legal and opportunity for Q&A – Nick Perrett, Director JPH Accountants & Stephanie McGrath, Senior Associate Robert James Lawyers
  • Supported by the invaluable experience of Lily Ge, pharmacy owner who will tell you how she did it and what she learnt along the way.

This is especially beneficial to early career pharmacists who have ownership aspiration but may not know where to start or may not be confident with their current skill sets. Pharmacy intern and pharmacy students will come out of the workshop with the foundation that will prepare them for ownership considerations in the near future.

Learning objectives:

After completing this activity, pharmacists should be able to:

  • Describe the variety of ownership structures in community pharmacy and the legal requirements underpinning their structure.
  • Identify key financial information in determining the performance of a pharmacy business.
  • Recognise the risk considerations in pharmacy ownership and their management and mitigation.
  • Demonstrate how to identify a pharmacy purchasing opportunity and describe the key parameters used to derive the valuation of a pharmacy.
  • Discuss the legal considerations in making an offer to purchase a pharmacy such as sales contract, partnership agreements and lease transfers.
  • List issues arising from the transfer and transition of ownership.

As the medicine experts, pharmacists are often asked about the suitability of medications in pregnancy and breastfeeding from patients, carers and other healthcare providers. This is a crucial professional service pharmacists provide to the community, however often times the information available may not be clear or hard to find. With many women requiring pharmacological therapy at some stage during pregnancy and breastfeeding, pharmacists need to provide accurate evidence-based advice to support these patients.

This session aims to upskill pharmacists on this important clinical topic and help them become more confident to support their patients who require medications during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

 

Learning objectives

After participating in this workshop, pharmacists should be able to:

  • Demonstrate an understanding of the place in therapy of pharmacological therapies in pregnancy and breastfeeding
  • Become familiar with the clinical resources available when determining appropriateness of medications in pregnancy and breastfeeding
  • Discuss the safety concerns when selecting medications to be used during pregnancy and breastfeeding
  • Develop a process of assessing risk vs benefit when pharmacological therapies are required during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Monthly Learning with Peers

Monthly Learning with Peers represents an opportunity for pharmacists to:

  • Come together and network.
  • View a selected online CPD podcast together.
  • Complete MCQs and have discussions around the clinical topic and learn from each other in a peer supported session facilitated by your area coordinator.

This session aims to provide pharmacists with clinical information supplemented by knowledge sharing between peers. Individually we have a lot to share due to our unique work experiences. As health professionals that are continually learning there are often many questions that we don’t have answers to. Come along and find out what we can learn from each other and how this might shape our professional development and bridge our clinical gaps.

We encourage you to bring your laptop, tablet or other portable device so that you can log-in and complete the MCQs during the session.

These sessions are held on the first Tuesday evening of each month starting in March and ending in October in Parkville and selected regional areas due to local demand:

Overview

July Topic: Diabetes – therapeutic and clinical background

Synopsis

As the medicine experts, pharmacists are often asked about the suitability of medications in pregnancy and breastfeeding from patients, carers and other healthcare providers. This is a crucial professional service pharmacists provide to the community, however often times the information available may not be clear or hard to find. With many women requiring pharmacological therapy at some stage during pregnancy and breastfeeding, pharmacists need to provide accurate evidence-based advice to support these patients.

This session aims to upskill pharmacists on this important clinical topic and help them become more confident to support their patients who require medications during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

 

Learning objectives

After participating in this workshop, pharmacists should be able to:

  • Demonstrate an understanding of the place in therapy of pharmacological therapies in pregnancy and breastfeeding
  • Become familiar with the clinical resources available when determining appropriateness of medications in pregnancy and breastfeeding
  • Discuss the safety concerns when selecting medications to be used during pregnancy and breastfeeding
  • Develop a process of assessing risk vs benefit when pharmacological therapies are required during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Overview

Mental health first aid is the help provided to a person who is developing a mental health problem, experiencing a worsening of an existing mental health problem or is in a mental health crisis, until appropriate professional treatment is received or the crisis resolves. Mental health first aid strategies are taught in evidence-based training programs authored by Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Australia.

This 2-day workshop, facilitated by an accredited MHFA pharmacist passionate about mental health teaches pharmacists and pharmacy support staff about the signs and symptoms of the common and disabling mental health problems, how to provide initial help, where and how to get professional help, what sort of help has been shown by research to be effective, and how to provide first aid in a crisis situation. There will be application of mental health first aid through pharmacy related case scenarios. The course curriculum is based on the MHFA Guidelines.

Mental health is everybody’s business. One in five Australians experiences a mental illness in any one year. Also, rates of self-injury and suicide increase with remoteness from big cities, suggesting significant mental health issues need addressing in rural and remote areas. There is also less access to specialised mental health care in rural areas.

By undertaking the Mental Health First Aid workshop, you’ll develop greater confidence to deal with people as they encounter issues such as depression, anxiety, psychosis, substance use problems, non-suicidal self-injury and thoughts of suicide.

Following the training and after passing a short online assessment, you will be an Accredited Mental Health First Aider. You also take home the 180+ page Mental Health First Aid Manual, as a resource to support you in implementing your new understandings.

Learning objectives:

  • Identify the signs and symptoms of the common and disabling mental health problems
  • Outline the sort of help that has been shown by research to be effective
  • Outline to clients and colleagues where and how to get professional help for mental health problems
  • Provide initial help to adults who have signs and symptoms of mental health problems
  • Provide first aid in a mental health crisis situation

Parkville: APSIG July 2018: Renal impairment – causes, management and drug dosing @ Cossar Hall Tutorial Rooms
Jul 23 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Overview

Chronic renal disease can contribute to and/or be impacted by other chronic diseases. With 1 in 3 Australians at an increased risk of developing renal disease, it is likely that pharmacists will encounter patients with reduced renal function when conducting medication reviews. Pharmacists are well placed to consider laboratory results and accordingly provide advice on medications that require dosage adjustment and identifying medications that can adversely affect renal functions.

This evening will commence with a literature review by Professor Louis Roller. There will be case studies to support interactive discussions

 

*Please note: Eventbrite ticket is for registration purposes only. Please bring your PSA Membership card on the night for CPD recording.

  • 7-7:30pm: Refreshments and Networking
  • 7:30-9:30pm: Workshop

Learning objectives:

After completing this activity, pharmacists should be able to:

  • Describe the common causes of chronic renal disease in older patients.
  • Discuss the complications (anaemia, bone disease, metabolic acidosis, and electrolyte imbalance) of chronic renal disease and its pharmacological and non-pharmacological management.
  • Recognise significant laboratory indicators used in the diagnosis and monitoring of renal disease and its complications and describe how kidney function is measured.
  • Describe patient and drug factors that influence dosing in renal impairment and dialysis, and key drugs that require dose modification and the process for calculating the optimal dose.

*These learning objectives are correct at the time of publication and are subject to change.

Competency Standards:

This event addresses the following:

Competency Standards (2016): 2.1.2, 2.1.3, 2.2.2, 2.2.3, 2.3.1, 2.3.2, 3.1.1, 3.1.2, 3.1.3, 3.2.5, 3.2.6, 3.3.1, 3.3.2, 3.3.3

(Login required)register now button

 

Synopsis

As the medicine experts, pharmacists are often asked about the suitability of medications in pregnancy and breastfeeding from patients, carers and other healthcare providers. This is a crucial professional service pharmacists provide to the community, however often times the information available may not be clear or hard to find. With many women requiring pharmacological therapy at some stage during pregnancy and breastfeeding, pharmacists need to provide accurate evidence-based advice to support these patients. This session aims to upskill pharmacists on this important clinical topic and help them become more confident to support their patients who require medications during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Learning objectives

After participating in this workshop, pharmacists should be able to:

  • Demonstrate an understanding of the place in therapy of pharmacological therapies in pregnancy and breastfeeding
  • Become familiar with the clinical resources available when determining appropriateness of medications in pregnancy and breastfeeding
  • Discuss the safety concerns when selecting medications to be used during pregnancy and breastfeeding
  • Develop a process of assessing risk vs benefit when pharmacological therapies are required during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

This plan needs to be completed by September 30 of each year.

How can we help you achieve this?

This is an interactive webinar where:

  • You will receive an overview of the CPD Registration Standard and how to use PSA’s CPD Planning Tool.
  • You will have a PSA pharmacist facilitator that will personally assist you and answer any practical questions relating to the tool using the screening sharing functionality of webinar platform so that you can complete your CPD plan.

So that you get as much out of this webinar, we highly encourage you to familiarise yourself with PSA’s CPD Planning Tool which can be accessed on this link: http://www.psa.org.au/my-career-and-cpd-plans/cpd-2.

This workshop is opened exclusively to PSA members free of charge. There are limited spaces and for this reason we ask that you honour your commitment. This webinar will not be accredited for CPD credits as the bulk of the session is dedicated to assisting you with the CPD Planning Tool.

Medications in Pregnancy & Breastfeeding interactive workshop – Kogarah @ Kogarah (Venue To Be Advised)
Aug 15 @ 6:45 pm – 9:00 pm

(Login required)register now button

 

Synopsis

As the medicine experts, pharmacists are often asked about the suitability of medications in pregnancy and breastfeeding from patients, carers and other healthcare providers. This is a crucial professional service pharmacists provide to the community, however often times the information available may not be clear or hard to find. With many women requiring pharmacological therapy at some stage during pregnancy and breastfeeding, pharmacists need to provide accurate evidence-based advice to support these patients.

This session aims to upskill pharmacists on this important clinical topic and help them become more confident to support their patients who require medications during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

 

Learning objectives

After participating in this workshop, pharmacists should be able to:

  • Demonstrate an understanding of the place in therapy of pharmacological therapies in pregnancy and breastfeeding
  • Become familiar with the clinical resources available when determining appropriateness of medications in pregnancy and breastfeeding
  • Discuss the safety concerns when selecting medications to be used during pregnancy and breastfeeding
  • Develop a process of assessing risk vs benefit when pharmacological therapies are required during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

(Login required)register now button

 

Synopsis

As the medicine experts, pharmacists are often asked about the suitability of medications in pregnancy and breastfeeding from patients, carers and other healthcare providers. This is a crucial professional service pharmacists provide to the community, however often times the information available may not be clear or hard to find. With many women requiring pharmacological therapy at some stage during pregnancy and breastfeeding, pharmacists need to provide accurate evidence-based advice to support these patients.

This session aims to upskill pharmacists on this important clinical topic and help them become more confident to support their patients who require medications during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

 

Learning objectives

After participating in this workshop, pharmacists should be able to:

  • Demonstrate an understanding of the place in therapy of pharmacological therapies in pregnancy and breastfeeding
  • Become familiar with the clinical resources available when determining appropriateness of medications in pregnancy and breastfeeding
  • Discuss the safety concerns when selecting medications to be used during pregnancy and breastfeeding
  • Develop a process of assessing risk vs benefit when pharmacological therapies are required during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Overview

Mental health first aid is the help provided to a person who is developing a mental health problem, experiencing a worsening of an existing mental health problem or is in a mental health crisis, until appropriate professional treatment is received or the crisis resolves. Mental health first aid strategies are taught in evidence-based training programs authored by Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Australia.

This 2-day workshop, facilitated by an accredited MHFA pharmacist passionate about mental health teaches pharmacists and pharmacy support staff about the signs and symptoms of the common and disabling mental health problems, how to provide initial help, where and how to get professional help, what sort of help has been shown by research to be effective, and how to provide first aid in a crisis situation. There will be application of mental health first aid through pharmacy related case scenarios. The course curriculum is based on the MHFA Guidelines.

Mental health is everybody’s business. One in five Australians experiences a mental illness in any one year. Also, rates of self-injury and suicide increase with remoteness from big cities, suggesting significant mental health issues need addressing in rural and remote areas. There is also less access to specialised mental health care in rural areas.

By undertaking the Mental Health First Aid workshop, you’ll develop greater confidence to deal with people as they encounter issues such as depression, anxiety, psychosis, substance use problems, non-suicidal self-injury and thoughts of suicide.

Following the training and after passing a short online assessment, you will be an Accredited Mental Health First Aider. You also take home the 180+ page Mental Health First Aid Manual, as a resource to support you in implementing your new understandings.

Learning objectives:

  • Identify the signs and symptoms of the common and disabling mental health problems
  • Outline the sort of help that has been shown by research to be effective
  • Outline to clients and colleagues where and how to get professional help for mental health problems
  • Provide initial help to adults who have signs and symptoms of mental health problems
  • Provide first aid in a mental health crisis situation

Overview

Mental health first aid is the help provided to a person who is developing a mental health problem, experiencing a worsening of an existing mental health problem or is in a mental health crisis, until appropriate professional treatment is received or the crisis resolves. Mental health first aid strategies are taught in evidence-based training programs authored by Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Australia.

This 2-day workshop, facilitated by an accredited MHFA pharmacist passionate about mental health teaches pharmacists and pharmacy support staff about the signs and symptoms of the common and disabling mental health problems, how to provide initial help, where and how to get professional help, what sort of help has been shown by research to be effective, and how to provide first aid in a crisis situation. There will be application of mental health first aid through pharmacy related case scenarios. The course curriculum is based on the MHFA Guidelines.

Mental health is everybody’s business. One in five Australians experiences a mental illness in any one year. Also, rates of self-injury and suicide increase with remoteness from big cities, suggesting significant mental health issues need addressing in rural and remote areas. There is also less access to specialised mental health care in rural areas.

By undertaking the Mental Health First Aid workshop, you’ll develop greater confidence to deal with people as they encounter issues such as depression, anxiety, psychosis, substance use problems, non-suicidal self-injury and thoughts of suicide.

Following the training and after passing a short online assessment, you will be an Accredited Mental Health First Aider. You also take home the 180+ page Mental Health First Aid Manual, as a resource to support you in implementing your new understandings.

Learning objectives:

  • Identify the signs and symptoms of the common and disabling mental health problems
  • Outline the sort of help that has been shown by research to be effective
  • Outline to clients and colleagues where and how to get professional help for mental health problems
  • Provide initial help to adults who have signs and symptoms of mental health problems
  • Provide first aid in a mental health crisis situation

Overview

Pharmacists are key primary healthcare providers and are well placed to contribute to improved access to immunisation especially to those most at risk of complications from vaccine-preventable disease through the provision of pharmacist administered immunisation service.

As at 10 May 2016 it was legislated that pharmacists could immunise in Victoria in accordance with specific legislations and guidelines. Currently there are approximately 20% of pharmacies in Victoria registered to provide pharmacist administered immunisation services, the percentage of which is lower in regional and rural Victoria.

This session aims to support pharmacists, pharmacy staff and pharmacies interested in delivering a pharmacist administered immunisation service with an insight into the legislations and guidelines that govern this service and the practical considerations around implementation and promotion. Pharmacists who are currently delivering this service will benefit from the promotional discussions that can help improve awareness and uptake of the service. The pharmacy team overall will find value in consolidating their understanding of effective cold chain management.

This is a free event, however it is requested that participants register via the link above. Pharmacists and all pharmacy staff are welcome to attend. All attendees will receive a pertussis and registration resource kit.

  • 6.30-7:00pm: Refreshments and Networking
  • 7:00-9:00pm: Presentation

Learning objectives:

After completing this activity, pharmacists should be able to:

  • Describe the value of a pharmacist administered vaccination service.
  • Discuss the legislations and guidelines by which pharmacist immunisers and pharmacies must comply with to provide a pharmacist administered
    vaccination service in Victoria.
  • Describe the practical considerations of implementing a pharmacist administered vaccination service and demonstrate ways in which pharmacists and the pharmacy team can promote this service in the pharmacy.
  • Recognise the principles and importance of cold chain management and implement processes that are required for effective cold chain management

*These learning objectives are correct at the time of publication and are subject to change.

Overview

Pharmacists are key primary healthcare providers and are well placed to contribute to improved access to immunisation especially to those most at risk of complications from vaccine-preventable disease through the provision of pharmacist administered immunisation service.

As at 10 May 2016 it was legislated that pharmacists could immunise in Victoria in accordance with specific legislations and guidelines. Currently there are approximately 20% of pharmacies in Victoria registered to provide pharmacist administered immunisation services, the percentage of which is lower in regional and rural Victoria.

This session aims to support pharmacists, pharmacy staff and pharmacies interested in delivering a pharmacist administered immunisation service with an insight into the legislations and guidelines that govern this service and the practical considerations around implementation and promotion. Pharmacists who are currently delivering this service will benefit from the promotional discussions that can help improve awareness and uptake of the service. The pharmacy team overall will find value in consolidating their understanding of effective cold chain management.

This is a free event, however it is requested that participants register via the link above. Pharmacists and all pharmacy staff are welcome to attend. All attendees will receive a pertussis and registration resource kit.

  • 6.30-7:00pm: Refreshments and Networking
  • 7:00-9:00pm: Presentation

Learning objectives:

After completing this activity, pharmacists should be able to:

  • Describe the value of a pharmacist administered vaccination service.
  • Discuss the legislations and guidelines by which pharmacist immunisers and pharmacies must comply with to provide a pharmacist administered
    vaccination service in Victoria.
  • Describe the practical considerations of implementing a pharmacist administered vaccination service and demonstrate ways in which pharmacists and the pharmacy team can promote this service in the pharmacy.
  • Recognise the principles and importance of cold chain management and implement processes that are required for effective cold chain management
