Pharmacy World Congress coming to Brisbane in 2021

September 1, 2018

PSA, on behalf of the Australian member organisations of the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP), is proud to announce Brisbane will host the FIP World Congress of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences in 2021.

 

The International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) is the global body representing pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences.

 

As the peak national body for all pharmacists, PSA, in collaboration with the Society of Hospital Pharmacists of Australia (SHPA) and the Australasian Pharmaceutical Science Association (APSA) won a consortium bid to host the major international event at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre.

 

PSA National President Dr Shane Jackson said the FIP Congress 2021 will provide a platform to showcase global innovation, including models that support pharmacists practising to their full scope, and the health outcomes that these models have delivered in other countries.

 

“The FIP Congress 2021 is a landmark opportunity to continue to ensure roles, recognition and remuneration for pharmacists in Australia are optimised and comparable with other countries around the world.

 

“PSA is leading the profession by bringing Australian pharmacy practice to the world stage.”

 

PSA will draw on its experience delivering its flagship annual conference PSA18, which this year attracted more than 1,000 delegates and received overwhelmingly positive feedback.

 

Combined, the host organisations represent over 20,000 members across Australia in community and hospital pharmacy, academia and the pharmaceutical sciences.

 

The Consortium’s bid is strongly supported by the two New Zealand FIP member organisations – the Pharmaceutical Society of New Zealand (PSNZ) and the New Zealand Hospital Pharmacists Association (NHPA) – as well as the FIP Western Pacific Pharmaceutical Forum, which will help spread the message to the Asia Pacific region.
