Excitement ahead of PSA21VIRTUAL!
The Pharmaceutical Society of Australia (PSA) is excited for our upcoming National Conference, PSA21 – Your Tribe is Calling, on Friday 30th July to Sunday 1st August https://www.psa21.com.au/.
PSA21VIRTUAL is Australia’s leading education conference for pharmacists and kicks off as a virtual interactive experience next Friday.
The event offers an opportunity for pharmacists across all areas of practice to access industry-leading CPD; hear from industry, political leaders and experts; to showcase their research and to advance Australia’s standard of pharmacist-delivered patient care through innovative ideas and solutions.
Over the course of the three-day event, delegates will hear from leaders and experts in the industry, keeping you up-to-date with recent developments, policy and practice changes. Delegates will also have the opportunity to learn from and build relationships with specialist and expert speakers across diverse topics. Event speakers include international guest Dan Schneider, pharmacist and activist from the Netflix docuseries “The Pharmacist”, A/Prof Suzanne Nielsen, Dr Jacinta Johnson, Dr Katie Allen MP, Emma McBride MP and Dr Andrew Stafford along with a special announcement from the Commonwealth Minister for Health and Aged Care Hon Greg Hunt MP.
The PSA21 program has been designed to suit the changing needs of all pharmacists – with high quality, robust Continuing Professional Development and platforms for innovative practice and strategic networking opportunities. Specialised masterclasses in aged care, diabetes, heart failure and research will be held throughout August as part of the PSA21 virtual program.
PSA21VIRTUAL is a fully interactive experience which allows delegates to move between virtual rooms, have their burning clinical and product questions answered by exhibitors in the virtual exhibition hall, and live chat with colleagues and speakers.
Celebration of pharmacy student achievements is an integral component of PSA’s national conference, and during the event, PSA will host the Pharmacy Student of the Year (PSOTY) awards. PSOTY awards recognise and celebrate outstanding pharmacy students by showcasing their counselling skills to the pharmacy profession.
Building on an already successful partnership, PSA will again be working closely with the Australasian Pharmaceutical Science Association (APSA), to bring you the latest in research that impacts your practice through PSA21 Abstract presentations.
Advancing the quality of patient care and pharmacy practice is a cornerstone of PSA’s organisational intent. Pharmacy Shark Tank showcases Australian pharmacists’ innovative ideas and solutions that address unmet clinical needs and how these ideas can shape the future of pharmacy practice. This component of the national conference provides a fresh perspective to the profession, and has been the catalyst for tangible change across various fronts of clinical practice.
