Pre-Conference Workshops

Workshop 1: Harm Minimisation – getting community pharmacy involved
As pharmacists we endeavour to improve health outcomes. Sometimes we can do this by avoiding hazardous drug use and the practices associated with acquiring and administering these drugs or habits. This session will explore the use of licit and illicit drugs (and habits) and the mechanisms available to pharmacists to keep our community safe from vices such as smoking and prescription drug use.

WORKSHOP 2: How to protect your most valuable business asset – your registration
Regulatory activity within NSW is constant and unavoidable. This practical session will focus on the role of the Pharmacy Council of NSW and how it interacts with other regulators to protect the public. Find out what this means for your business and those who work within it – employed pharmacists, locums and you as a proprietor. Session highlights will include:

  • The complaints process – who is who in the zoo?
  • Which issues land business owners in the most trouble
  • Tips to minimise regulatory exposure
  • Real life experiences from the regulatory coalface.
  • Locums, silent partners, graduates, early career pharmacists – where does the risk lie?
  • Professional isolation versus mentoring – are you giving back to the profession?
  • The importance of professional autonomy
  • Support and closing the knowledge gaps

This not to be missed event is a must for all business owners and employed pharmacists.

When: 2.00pm – 5.30pm, Thursday 1 September
Where:
