A central aim of Australia’s National Medicines Policy is the quality use of medicines which aims to ensure that all medicines are used appropriately, safely and effectively by consumers.

The pharmacist, as an important and well-placed member of the health-care team, has a pivotal role in promoting health and wellness in the community, particularly through the quality use of medicines.

The Pharmaceutical Society of Australia’s Practice Support Unit is committed to developing health promotion presentations as an easy-to-use tool for community pharmacists wishing to run local information sessions.

These sessions are aimed at ensuring the quality use of medicines and optimal health outcomes for consumers. A number of specially designed presentations are now available on the PSA website for pharmacists to download and use in their practice environments. Reviewing the downloads available will afford one CPD point per hour.

The presentations cover a range of topics including:

˙Asthma: managing your child’s medicines

˙Dose administration aids

˙Home medicines review

˙Head lice

˙Weight management

Each presentation pack includes a ready-made PowerPoint presentation as well as a presenter guide with notes and a participant handout (both in Adobe Acrobat.pdf file format).

More presentations will be available in the coming months. The health promotion presentations are a free resource for PSA members. They can be accessed from the Nationally-Developed Materials link in the Professional Development Materials section of the PSA members-only website.
