Extension Seminar in Clinical Medication Management (June 2024)

Registration for this event is now closed.  Please contact education@shpa.org.au if you wish to be added to the notification list for the next seminar.

This seminar is designed to help you increase your sphere of influence, impact on patient care and extend your clinical practice across the patient care continuum.  A 6-week self-paced virtual learning package focusing on clinical practice fundamentals will be followed by an interactive one day live online event to consolidate learning.  Virtual case-based discussions of complex clinical scenarios and small group activities will be used to develop participant skills in problem solving to optimise medication management and resolve medication related problems. 

To foster greater interactivity and connection between tutors, presenters and attendees in the virtual learning environment, places are limited.

The self-paced learning package will be available from Friday 3 May 2024. It comprises a series of presentations, self-directed preparation questions and activities totalling approximately 8hrs of learning materials.

The live virtual component of this seminar will take place across two half day sessions on Saturday 15 June 2024.

Please note: all attendees will have 18 weeks of access to the seminar self-paced learning package and resources from your date of enrolment into this page.  Enrolment details will be sent to registered attendees when available.
