With just a few weeks remaining until the highly anticipated Pharmacy Assistant National Conference 2023, excitement is building within the pharmaceutical industry. This year’s conference is all set to be a dynamic platform for pharmacy assistants, professionals, and stakeholders, offering a comprehensive overview of the latest advancements, trends, and insights in the field.

The event, scheduled from August 31 to September 2, is expected to draw a diverse audience of pharmacy enthusiasts from across the country. The theme of the conference, “Embrace, Envision, Evolve,” sets the tone for an event that promises to explore the evolving landscape of pharmacy practices and innovations.

One of the standout features of this year’s conference is the exclusive VIP experience that has generated considerable buzz.

One lucky pharmacy assistant – Sheridan Weston from Gavin Staff Pharmacy, NSW – won a complimentary registration and an exclusive VIP breakfast encounter with the esteemed 2022 Pharmacy Assistant of the Year, Ms Terri Bakker.

The opportunity to interact with Ms Bakker, known for her outstanding achievements in community pharmacy, will offer Sheridan a unique chance to gain insights from her experiences and valuable contributions to patient care and community engagement.

As the countdown to the conference continues, the National President of the Pharmacy Guild of Australia, Professor Trent Twomey, has been vocal about the importance of this event. “Now, more than ever, pharmacies need staff to look towards the future and provide suggestions for improvement and change. Entering the competition and gaining exclusive access to an award-winning pharmacy assistant will only further develop the skills of our much-needed pharmacy assistants,” emphasised Professor Twomey.

The Pharmacy Assistant National Conference is designed to provide quality education, training, and personal development for all pharmacy assistants. The event’s agenda includes a range of educational sessions, networking opportunities, and access to a comprehensive trade exhibition featuring the latest products, technologies, and services in the pharmaceutical industry.

Notably, this year’s conference holds special significance as it will be held in conjunction with Pharmacy Connect, an annual Pharmacy Guild event catering to pharmacists and pharmacy owners. Both events will share a bustling trade exhibition and engaging social functions, providing attendees with an exceptional opportunity for education and networking.

The Pharmacy Assistant National Conference, which has been proudly educating pharmacy assistants around Australia for over two decades, promises to be a platform for growth, learning, and collaboration. As the countdown continues, the excitement within the industry is palpable, with professionals eagerly awaiting the event to gain insights, network with peers, and explore the latest innovations shaping the world of pharmacy.
