‘Unprecedented. Unparalleled. Once in a century.’ Ominous language has accompanied life in the shadow of coronavirus, which brought the world to a halt in March this year.

Yet as Australia grappled with what life will look like before a COVID-19 vaccine arrives – if it arrives at all – our leading community of pharmacists and technicians embodied the ethos embraced by health professionals the world over: Calmly prepare wherever possible, act on the latest verified information and keep the very best patient care top of mind at all times.

This special issue of Pharmacy GRIT has also swung toward COVID-19, sharing the experiences, innovations and perspectives of our members as they help prepare our healthcare system for a wave of patients that hopefully never eventuates.
