A Trip into The Past of Pharmacy in AU

A Trip into The Past of Pharmacy in Australia

Australia has a fascinating and diverse history of pharmacy which has spawned numerous books and articles over many years.

But no publication is a match for having a passionate storyteller relate some of the amazing, and often incredible snippets of our history.

This year, PAC11 has added an extra stream on the History of Pharmacy and its nuances which will feature three speakers who will enthral their audience with their passion and love for the history of the profession.

New Pharma officially launched

New Pharma officially launched

New Pharma was officially launched by Amanda Galbraith (chair of the Pharmacy Guild of Australia’s Women and Young Pharmacists’ Committee) and Shu Fen Liauw – pharmacist and daughter of the late

Judy Liauw (pictured right with Guild Executive Director Wendy Phillips) – at the Pharmacy Women’s Congress Dinner in Cairns on Saturday night. Shu Fen’s involvement in the launch was very apt, as hermother – the former chair of the WYPC and Guild National

Councillor – was the driving force behind the development of the initiative

Pharmacy School Moratorium Supported

Pharmacy school moratorium supported

It is time for a moratorium on any new schools – given that the number of schools has tripled since 1997,and that we urgently need accurate data on the pharmacist workforce to inform universities on how many graduates the industry will support. While the data in not yet available, the Guild is confident the existing schools will be able to adapt to clear workforce demands

First Fifth Agreement R&D Project …

First Fifth Agreement R&D Project Awarded

The Fifth Community Pharmacy Agreement Research and Development (R&D) Program has awarded

the first of six projects.

The commissioned project, RFT2010/11-05 Professional Integration, is a timely and important

research project given the context of primary healthcare reform. The project has been awarded to PricewaterhouseCoopers – in collaboration with the Australian General Practice Network and the

University of Technology Sydney – to identify a best practice model for the integration of community pharmacists in the primary health care setting.

The outcomes will be a set of recommendations and implementation requirements for best practice models for professional integration, the roles or interventions community pharmacists should engage in, and the mechanisms and enablers to achieve change.

Guild questions APESMA’s…

Guild questions APESMA’s underpayment claims

The Pharmacy Guild has responded to criticism from the Association of Professional Engineers,Scientists and Managers, Australia (APESMA) of alleged underpayments to employee pharmacists.

The attack came about a week after APESMA accused community pharmacies of “illegally” paying more than half of Australia’s supervised interns less than the award rates under the Pharmacy Industry Award 2010 (PIA). The Guild proved this claim was incorrect and was based on APESMA’s misunderstanding of the PIA. The Guild called on APESMA to apologise for the error, but no apology was issued.
