Pharmacists in 2023

Pharmacists in 2023 seeks to identify and unlock opportunities that realise the full potential of pharmacist practice as part of the wider health care team to address the health needs of all Australians.

The Discussion paper will empower the pharmacy workforce across healthcare, ensuring pharmacists are embedded wherever medicines are used, equipped with skills and opportunities to enhance community access to health services, and enabled through appropriate recognition and remuneration.


Pharmacists in 2023 seeks to go beyond outlining services, to uncover the barriers and identify the system changes required to better utilise pharmacists in delivering health outcomes.


In order to deliver on consumer needs and unlock opportunities for pharmacists in 2023, we need to enable changes within the Australian health system – this is the key objective for Pharmacists in 2023.
