ConPharm 2020 online

Due to the current climate and government restrictions associated with COVID-19, ConPharm 2020 in Adelaide will not be proceeding in 2020.

The AACP is disappointed that its 16th Annual Consultant Clinical Pharmacy Seminar will not be able to proceed in its usual face to face format.

Instead the AACP is offering an exciting new CPD offering ConPharm 2020 online. Speakers have agreed to self-record their presentations, and it is these recordings, accompanied by their power point slides that will be available to you, at a time and place that is most convenient for you!

If you have never attended ConPharm in the past, now is the perfect opportunity to see why the event has been spoken of as ‘the best and most relevant clinical pharmacy seminar of the year’.

For accredited pharmacists and those undergoing accreditation who view the recordings and successfully complete the associated multiple-choice questions, group two CPD credits will be available.

Participating in this online event will enable those looking for quality CPD to add to their 2020 total. The AACP will be seeking accreditation of the event for CPD purposes.

The focus will be on key issues relating to the importance of the safe and appropriate management of medicines for older people living both in the community and in aged care and the role of pharmacists in ensuring positive health outcomes for their patients.

Those delivering presentations include Professor Sarah Hilmer from the University of Sydney and Dr Emily Reeve from the University of South Australia (UniSA). Dr Janet Sluggett, Senior Research Fellow at UniSA will discuss the important issues she raised during her appearance at the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety and how pharmacists can identify and resolve medicine-related problems in aged care.

Also participating will be a number of the AACP’s popular speakers including Dr Andrew Stafford, Debbie Rigby and Professor Jeff Hughes.

Presentations on the clinical updates of aspects of deprescribing and the current management of asthma will be important ones not to miss. 

Dr Shane Jackson will present an overview of the new PSA Comprehensive Medication Reviews and Quality Use of Medicines guidelines, outlining the opportunities for pharmacists to be able to expand and utilize their skills

Accredited pharmacists experienced in the aged care sector will provide updates on antimicrobial stewardship and the use of chemical restraint.

Further details including speakers, presentations and pricing will be available soon. It is expected that the online content will be available from early July.
