Medicines Management: SHPA national conference

Alongside the MM2021 Scientific Program Committee, SHPA regrets to advise members that Medicines Management 2021, the 46th National Conference (MM2021) has been cancelled.

Steeply rising numbers of positive COVID-19 cases – and healthcare workers in isolation – in many states and territories is placing hospitals under intense pressure.

SHPA remains committed to supporting the profession at this critical time, as preserving the health, safety and energy of our frontline workers is crucial to maximising hospital capacity and protecting the health and wellbeing of all Australians.

Registered delegates and successful abstract authors will be emailed with full details of what happens next.

We look forward to supporting members and their peers to gather, network and celebrate at MM2022 in November.

2019 National committee

Led by Chair Natalie Tasker (NSW) and Deputy Chair Duncan McKenzie (Tas), the committee includes prominent pharmacists and technicians Mel Anderson (NSW), Sheridan Briggs (ACT), Margie Butnoris (Qld), Sarah Charles (Vic), Yvette Haselden (Qld), Adam Hort (WA), Kate Luttrell (Tas), Cathy Martin (NSW), Rachael Raleigh (Qld), Josephine To (SA/NT), Daniel Trajkov (Qld), Alan Tuxford (Vic), and Jason Waddell (Qld).

The success of future conferences will be aided by the introduction of two-year terms for committee members, which has also meant an end to the previous rotating model of one host city / host Branch per year.
