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:

BEFORE

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. 

DURING

Network

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.

Stay focused

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.  

AFTER

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.
