This year MPS Annual Seminar is set to be another record, not only in terms of the number of participants but also on the lecture topics, speakers and exhibition booths and as well for the Conference dinner.

The topic on Medication Safety with specially invited speakers from the US, Saudi Arabia, a dedicated advocate of Social Pharmacy from USM, and also a Director of Hospital all adds up to give a program not to be missed. 

There are also topics on therapeutics guidelines as well as a topic on the understanding of generic  assurance program as well as a topic on CPG Guideline.

An equally not-to-be-missed program will be one on the Forum on Community Pharmacy Issues.  Good Dispensing Practice is presented as well as a review of legislation affecting community pharmacy.  The soon-to-be-introduced BLESS will be showcase for the first time to the participants attending the seminar and a special exhibition booth is allocated to this project for hands-on experience.

What may possibly be the top of all the program is Panel Discussion on Issues on Pharmaceutical Pricing Discrimination. Here members are strongly advised to come prepared to give their views as well as TO PROVIDE CONSTRUCTIVE SUGGESTIONS to overcome the issue.

A close-to-the-heart topic of all pharmacists is the dispensing separation and an afternoon session is dedicated to it to discuss on strategies.

Another possibly THE top of the weekend program will be the MPS AGM and biennale Election where members will have the opportunity to chose the next set of council members, or chose to re-elect the present council for another term of office. This is happening on 24th May from 2.30pm

Do not be miss out. Registration is still open even though the number of registered participants now is beyond 500.  The hotel chosen is able to accommodate all of you who are willing to spend the 3 days from 23rd – 25th May with the MPS.
