Pharmacists are being encouraged by The Pharmacy Guild of Australia to enrol in additional training before APP to bring themselves up-to-date and learn hands-on methods to help them practice to their full potential.

“I invite my colleagues to join a workshop on Wednesday, 19 May, one day before APP. They are being conveniently held at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre,” said Kos Sclavos AM, APP Convenor.

“The CPD refresher or full immunisation course1 on Wednesday 19 May is already sold-out and will familiarise pharmacists’ with regulatory requirements as well as providing practical skill-based training in safe injection technique.”

APP’s Official Education Partner, the Australasian College of Pharmacy, is also running a not-to-be-missed workshop on Wednesday, 19 May.

The Australasian College of Pharmacy CEO, Dr. Dimitri Kopanakis, said that the pre-APP seminar would provide attendees with updates on vital clinical topics, including practical approaches to treating patients with chronic health conditions, triptans for migraines, adapalene, cannabidiol, melatonin, COVID-19 vaccinations, and holistic vaccination approaches.

“The seminar contains a workshop that is underpinned by a complex chronic care case study to explore the prescribing competencies necessary to address harm minimisation, therapy adaptation and deprescribing,” said Dr. Kopanakis.

“The seminar contains 7 hours of content. The ACP is currently seeking CPD accreditation,” said Dr. Kopanakis, “The workshop supports pharmacists to practice to their full potential and brings together leading academic, community and hospital pharmacist speakers.”

“I’m pleased to announce the expert line-up of speakers1, including Dr. Treasure McGuire, Dr. David Pache, Nicolette Ellis and Dr. Brett MacFarlane, Chief Pharmacist for the Australasian College of Pharmacy,” said Dr. Kopanakis.
