BRISBANE HOSTS FIP CONGRESS
PHARMACY professionals from across the globe are set to gather in 2021 for the FIP World Congress of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre (pictured).
The announcement follows a successful bid by the Society of Hospital Pharmacists of Australia (SHPA), the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia (PSA) and the Australasian Pharmaceutical Science Association (APSA).
“The FIP Congress 2021 is a landmark opportunity to continue to ensure roles, recognition and remuneration for pharmacists in Australia are optimised and comparable with other countries around the world,” said PSA national president Dr Shane Jackson.
“PSA is leading the profession by bringing Australian pharmacy practice to the world stage,” Jackson said.
The host organisations represent over 20,000 members across Australia in community and hospital pharmacy, academia and the pharmaceutical sciences.
SHPA ceo Kristin Michaels said the event would showcase Australia’s enthusiasm and capability to deliver an “outstanding and memorable international professional meeting”.
