PSA re­search pact

Pharmacy Daily - - Front Page -

THE Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal So­ci­ety of Aus­tralia has an­nounced a strate­gic part­ner­ship with the Aus­tralasian Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal Sci­ence As­so­ci­a­tion (APSA) to pro­mote phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal sci­ence re­search and im­ple­ment it into phar­macy prac­tice.

PSA Na­tional Pres­i­dent Shane Jack­son an­nounced the deal at the APSA 2018 Con­fer­ence in Ade­laide, with the or­gan­i­sa­tions also in­tend­ing to work to­gether on their an­nual con­fer­ences through to 2021 in­clud­ing col­lab­o­ra­tion on a re­search stream for PSA19 to take place at the Hy­att Re­gency Syd­ney from 26-28 Jul next year.

Jack­son said PSA would also sup­port work­shops at APSA con­fer­ences, say­ing the agree­ment would “boost recog­ni­tion amongst phar­ma­cists of ground­break­ing re­search in the phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal sciences as well as con­nect­ing phar­macy prac­tice re­searchers to the wider pro­fes­sion.

“Trans­lat­ing this re­search into ev­ery­day phar­macy prac­tice will lead to bet­ter health out­comes in the com­mu­nity,” he said.

PSA and APSA, along­side the So­ci­ety of Hos­pi­tal Phar­ma­cists of Aus­tralia, will bring the phar­macy world to Aus­tralia af­ter win­ning a bid to host the In­ter­na­tional Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal Fed­er­a­tion (FIP) 81st Congress of Phar­macy and Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal Sciences in Bris­bane in 2021 (PD 01 Sep 2018).
