Tips to maximise your Pharmacy Connect experience
Pharmacy Connect provides a valuable opportunity for you to bring new ideas back to your pharmacy. Here’s some tips on how to maximise your experience:
Determine your expectations
What would you like to gain from Pharmacy Connect? Browse the Registration Brochure and formulate some key goals and expectations.
Study the program
Examine the program and speakers available. Pick out the sessions you’d like to attend that align with your goals and expectations. Make note of the time and location. Take a look at the trade exhibition stands and floor plan and identify those you don’t want to miss.
Make the most of the networking opportunities available through the Welcome Reception, Gala Dinner, trade exhibition, sessions and food breaks. Keep an open mind and learn from a variety of different perspectives.
Your phone, laptop and tablet can be very distracting so keep their use to a minimum to ensure you stay focused (and make sure you charge them beforehand!). Write lots of notes to help your memory and jot down the key take outs you took from each session you attend.
Reflect on learnings & share with others
Browse through your conference handbook and your notes. Identify the overall key takeaways from the conference and learnings you can share back in the pharmacy, and how you can implement them.
