National PSA conference goes virtual

The national Pharmaceutical Society of Australia (PSA) conference, ‘PSA21VIRTUAL – Your Tribe is Calling’, starts this Friday 31 July to Sunday 1 August 2021, with the event offering an opportunity for pharmacists across all areas of practice to participate virtually in an “informative and enjoyable couple of days”.

The event provides pharmacists with the opportunity to access CPD; hear from the industry, political leaders and experts; to showcase their research and to advance Australia’s standard of pharmacist-delivered patient care through innovative ideas and solutions, and PSA National President, Associate Professor Chris Freeman says the three-day event won’t be just “another Zoom” meeting.

“If you are undecided about attending, or have been deterred by the conference going virtual, I reiterate that this is not another Zoom,” says Associate Professor Freeman.

“PSA21VIRTUAL kicks off on Friday and I am incredibly excited for what will be a unique, informative and enjoyable couple of days.

“For many, shifting to virtual settings has had its perks – and I believe that our virtual conference will be one of these instances.

“I have had the privilege of getting a sneak peek of the state-of-the-art conference platform, and I am excited at how it will help us all connect, collaborate and learn.

“PSA21VIRTUAL will be interactive and easy to use. The virtual platform allows you to walk through the doors, tour the exhibition hall and take your seat in the conference room.

“The conference includes a 3D exhibition where you can download and access resources, as well connect with exhibitors and have your questions answered.

“There is a meeting hub where you can connect with colleagues and your tribe as well as a research gallery to view the latest research from across the country.

“Even without the face-to-face element, you will still have the opportunity to learn from and build relationships with experts and politicians including, Dan Schneider, Emma McBride MP and Professor Andrew McLachlan.

“I am excited that PSA can continue to deliver a world-class event to you, and we encourage you to all to come together to connect with your tribe online,” he adds.
