International line up at APP2017
Australian Pharmacy Professional Conference and Trade Exhibition 2017 (APP2017) is thrilled to announce international keynote speakers to the APP presenter lineup.
Alistair Bursey is an owner-pharmacist and Chair of the Board of Canadian Pharmacists Association (CPHA); and Graeme Blanchard is the President of the Pharmacy Guild of New Zealand.
Alistair and Graeme will each explore key issues currently facing pharmacy in Australia, and provide insight into how we can learn from their experiences overseas.
Join Alistair as he presents ‘Professional Pharmacy Services in the Canadian Market’ on Friday 10 March. Discussing Canada’s current pharmacy renumerated professional services, Alistair shares how Australian pharmacists can implement a similar model for success locally.
“We utilize Drug Therapy Problem reports (DTP) to inform physicians of what problem we have identified, and how we fixed it… it’s helped to foster respect for what we do for our mutual patients,” Alistair said.
Additionally, on Saturday 11 March, Graeme Blanchard will share how New Zealand has led the way on many remunerated professional pharmacy services and the country’s success in down scheduling medicine .
APP2017 will feature an exciting line-up of 70 expert Australian and international speakers, covering topics from cutting edge industry issues and clinical updates to finance and business management.
