Clinical Intervention Workshops for Pharmacists

The Pharmaceutical Society of Australia, in conjunction with the University of Tasmania, is launching a series of workshops for pharmacists wanting to deliver clinical intervention services to be funded under the Fifth Community Pharmacy Agreement.

Under 5CPA, the Government will be funding pharmacists through the Pharmacy Practice Incentive (PPI) Program to deliver quality professional services to consumers to improve their health outcomes.

The Unit for Medication Outcomes Research and Education (UMORE) at the University

of Tasmania conducted research, funded under the Third and Fourth Community Pharmacy Agreements, which has resulted in clinical interventions becoming a funded service under 5CPA PPI Program.

To assist pharmacists to proactively provide the best possible clinical intervention services under this program, PSA will deliver a series of one-day small group workshops around the country.

PSA Launches In-Pharmacy Support Program for Professional Service

Community pharmacies have faced a number of pressures in recent times to increase their offering of professional services such as Dose Administration Aids, Medication Reviews and other health-focused services including disease state management programs.

However, effective implementation and sustainability of professional services requires dedicated time and can often be challenging for the busy pharmacist.

Research has shown that while pharmacists welcome the opportunity to deliver professional services, they are also looking for more assistance in making the changes required to integrate these services into their everyday practice.

In response to these challenges, and to coincide with the start of the 5th Community Pharmacy Agreement, the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia has launched a special program to support pharmacies in the implementation and management of professional services.
