Call For Abstracts

You are invited to submit your abstracts for PSA17 and contribute to leading pharmacy innovation.

The Contributed posters and papers session provides an opportunity for practitioners and researchers to share their ideas and work with colleagues and the pharmacy profession in general. It aims at encouraging research and innovation amongst both academics and practitioners, and fostering collaboration amongst academic researchers and practitioners. The abstracts selected will be presented in the ‘PIONEERING CLINICAL PRACTICE AND RESEARCH’ stream and/or as a poster.

  • Sydney, Australia, 28-30 July 2017

    PSA17 will continue to lead pharmacy innovation with a joint Pharmaceutical Society of Australia (PSA) – Commonwealth Pharmacists Association (CPA) conference to expand and discuss global pharmacy issues which impact practice in Australia and around the world. The three-day conference – embracing the theme of Leading Pharmacy Innovation – will be held at Darling Harbour in Sydney on Friday 28 to Sunday 30 July and will include a range of engaging panel sessions as well as high-profile international guest speakers and experts.

Highlights of the CPA’s contributions to the programme include…

Embracing innovative solutions to respond to increasing global pharmaceutical care needs

Dr Tim Hanlon is the Chief Pharmacist of one of the UK’s flagship hospital trusts. In this keynote talk, the CPA’s B Patel Lecture, Dr Hanlon will use developments in the UK to illustrate responses to the current and future healthcare landscape. He will describe innovative new ways of working and relate these to the wider global picture seen throughout the Commonwealth, including how we can help prepare the profession for new roles and challenges in the years ahead.

Anti-microbial Resistance

AMR continues to be a key area of focus for the CPA. We have engaged two excellent international speakers to host two sessions across the conference:

1. A global overview of AMR, including your experiences from around the Commonwealth

2. An AMR stewardship workshop

Elephants, education and evidence – building effective collaborations in resource-poor settings

Listen to our team of experts from our partners CASPPER to find out how to build a successful collaboration to support the development of the profession overseas. You might even be tempted to get involved!

Refugee Health

Globally this is a very hot topic of discussion for many reasons. We will look at the healthcare challenges for refugees and discuss the role of pharmacists in man made and natural disasters.
