The 2024 PSA events not to miss

1 December 2023


The Pharmaceutical Society of Australia (PSA) has released its full 2024 events and conferences calendar, highlighting the many opportunities for pharmacists in all practice settings and specialisations to earn CPD, develop their practice, and network with colleagues and suppliers.

The 2024 program sees the annual PSA Credentialed Pharmacist Conference (CPC24) head to Cairns from 3-5 May, closely followed by the 48th Offshore Refresher Conference in Spain from 7-15 May.

PSA’s series of Annual Therapeutic Updates also travels around the country throughout 2024, with dates in New South Wales, South Australia, Tasmania, Western Australia, and Queensland providing pharmacists with education tailored to the regulatory environment of their practice.

In 2024 PSA’s National Conference is expanding to a bigger venue than ever before, with PSA24 taking place at Sydney’s International Convention Centre (ICC) for the first time. Under the theme Pathways to Progress, conference delegates are invited to discover the opportunities of pharmacy careers into the future.

PSA National President Dr Fei Sim FPS said that the upcoming PSA conferences gave members the opportunity to access a range of education tailored to their scope and areas of practice.

“Our 2024 program is our biggest yet, with more opportunities for pharmacists to access high-quality education from Australia’s leading pharmacists,” Dr Sim said.

“PSA is proud to give pharmacists the opportunity to build their own education, whether through national conferences like PSA24, or closer to home though our series of ATUs.

“As pharmacy scope of practice continues to evolve, PSA conferences give all pharmacists the chance to develop their skills and expertise to deliver nation-leading care to patients.

“I strongly encourage all pharmacists, regardless of your area of practice, to join us at PSA’s leading education conferences in 2024,” Dr Sim concluded.

NSW Annual Therapeutic Update program now live

22 November 2023



The Pharmaceutical Society of Australia (PSA) has launched the full program of sessions for the New South Wales Annual Therapeutic Update to be held in Magenta Shores from 17-19 February 2024, with early registrations now open.

PSA’s series of Annual Therapeutic Updates provide pharmacists with clinical and practical information on the latest practice developments in their state or territory. Through three days of education, pharmacists will engage with content specifically designed to be relevant within the regulatory environment in New South Wales, including recent changes to pharmacist authorities and upcoming pilot programs.

PSA New South Wales President Luke Kelly FPS urged pharmacists from around the state to take the opportunity to develop their practice as part of their continued professional development.

“The PSA Annual Therapeutic Update is the premier opportunity for pharmacists in all practice settings to stay on top of their clinical knowledge,” Mr Kelly said.

“With the New South Wales Pharmacy Trial set to expand into the treatment of skin conditions in 2024, there has never been a more important time for pharmacists to learn from leaders and continue delivering quality care to our patients.

“I’m confident that all pharmacists, from all corners of our state and from all practice settings will develop new skills and expand their knowledge on topics relevant to daily practice,” Mr Kelly said.

The full program for the 2024 NSW ATU is available here.

PSA has also invited nominations for the NSW Pharmacist of the Year Awards, to be presented during the conference.

Awards are presented to recognise outstanding achievements, innovations, or contributions to the community and pharmacy profession.

“Recognising the skill and dedication of pharmacists is an important part of our role in promoting excellence in pharmacy practice,” Mr Kelly said.

“There are many examples of pharmacists who continue to go above and beyond for patients and for our profession and it is great to be able to recognise some of them in this way.

“I encourage all New South Wales members to recognise the achievements of our fellow pharmacists by making a nomination for the 2024 awards,” Mr Kelly concluded.

Nominations are available here, and close on 19 November 2023.
