Registrations open for Pharmacy 360, SHPA’s Accredited Pharmacist Conference!
A new two-day event ‘for established and emerging accredited pharmacists, those who work beside them and their networks’ is shaking up pharmacy conferencing, promising a dynamic program centred on innovating beyond traditional consultant pharmacy next February.
Registrations opened today for Pharmacy 360, SHPA’s Accredited Pharmacist Conference, which will be held in Adelaide, 23-24 February 2022, with discounted registration available for currently accredited pharmacists.
SHPA Chief Executive Kristin Michaels says Pharmacy 360 is about improving communications and connections to enhance patient safety.
‘Pharmacy 360, SHPA’s Accredited Pharmacist Conference, promises something brand new in the consultant pharmacy space.
‘It takes a 360-degree view of the person receiving care, as well as a 360-degree view of what surrounds each and every health professional connected to that patient to build bridges between settings and innovate beyond traditional practice.
‘For any health professional interested in the delivery of excellent medication management for older Australians in their homes or residential aged care, Pharmacy 360 is your passport to learn the latest from leaders in the field – and grow new networks among your peers dedicated to excellent care.’
The new conference comes at a key time for action in aged care, following this year’s Final Report of the Royal Commission into Aged Care and the SHPA Geriatric Medicine and Aged Care Clinical Pharmacy Services Position Statement.
With further speakers to be announced in the coming weeks, Ms Michaels says the Pharmacy 360 program will be packed with powerful insights from the cutting-edge of practice.
‘At the heart of Pharmacy 360 is a contemporary focus on centralising the patient experience.
‘Our comprehensive two-day program includes key clinical updates, focused skills development, a sweeping state of the nation and much more.
‘We’re thrilled to launch this new experience in the warmth of summer at the Adelaide Convention Centre, which from today is officially a fully vaccinated venue.’
