WITHIN the frame­work of Am­cal’s fo­cus on pa­tient-cen­tric care, the Sigma brand is play­ing a lead­ing role as a plat­inum spon­sor of the 7th In­ter­na­tional Car­ers Con­fer­ence in Ade­laide aim­ing to pos­i­tively in­flu­ence how Aus­tralia’s 2.7 mil­lion car­ers are sup­ported by the health care in­dus­try.

Am­cal Se­nior Phar­ma­cist James Nevile will present on day one of the con­fer­ence, pro­vid­ing in­sight into the ac­tive role phar­ma­cists play in a carer’s wider health care team, and the sup­port avail­able to car­ers and care re­cip­i­ents.

In ad­di­tion, con­fer­ence at­ten­dees can ac­cess a range of health ser­vices in­clud­ing heart health checks, med­i­ca­tion man­age­ment re­views and HbA1c test­ing at the Am­cal booth, with phar­ma­cists con­duct­ing 15 minute ses­sions through­out the con­fer­ence.

The In­ter­na­tional Car­ers Con­fer­ence brings to­gether more than 700 stake­hold­ers and runs 04 to 06 Oct at the Ade­laide Con­ven­tion Cen­tre.
