The Pharmacy Guild of Australia will launch a new national conference in 2016: Pharmacy Connect.
The event will meet the need identified by pharmacy owners, pharmacy managers and manufacturers for an industry conference in the second half of the year.
Pharmacy Connect will include a two-day education program, a trade exhibition with 60-plus exhibitors, welcome reception and gala dinner.
Program topics will include industry updates and trends, business growth, profitability and management topics, advice and practical examples of successful and profitable implementation of professional services, access to business mentoring, clinical updates, and much more.
Managed by the team that produces the Australian Pharmacy Professional Conference, Pharmacy Connect will replace the Pharmacy Business Network in Melbourne and NCE (National Convention & Exhibition) in Sydney.
The new conference will also serve as a platform to launch initiatives from the Sixth Community Pharmacy Agreement, both from the Pharmacy Guild of Australia and private companies, and will help pharmacy owners and staff develop practical business skills they can implement in their stores.
