Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt will address an expected 400-strong audience of pharmacists on Tuesday April 17 as part of TerryWhite Chemmart’s annual three-day ‘Masterclass’ event being held in Melbourne.
Mr Hunt will be speaking on the same day the delegation will hear more about the pivotal role TerryWhite Chemmart will play in the government’s digital health strategy through ‘My Health Record’ and the opportunity the ‘opt out’ transition will present to community pharmacy.
The panel discussion will incorporate industry-wide representatives from primary-care pharmacists to pharmacy owners and organisations such as Pharmaceutical Defence Limited and the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia.
TerryWhite Chemmart CEO Anthony White says digital health is a crucial initiative for all Australians and the pharmacy group has made ‘My Health Record’ an important focus of its health strategy, which also includes giving customers an exclusive app that will provide medication and health-services management.
“TerryWhite Chemmart’s three-day Masterclass will also include sessions on other topical industry matters, including chronic-pain management and the important role pharmacists play in immunisation and preventable diseases,” he said.
