The profession of pharmacy has been slow to deliver clinically based services and move from a product based model to a patient focused model. While the reasons for this lack of movement are complex, one of the impediments has been the lack of remuneration and the uncertainty about the value of evidence. As such, the profession needs a coordinated effort to collect the right evidence that will propel pharmacy forward.
Forward Pharmacy is a symposium that will bring together a number of pharmacy stakeholders including policymakers, funders, professional organisations and practising pharmacists to discuss cost-effective solutions to improve patient care.
This symposium presents an ideal opportunity to discover ways to improve New Zealand’s pharmacy profession. Pharmacy Forward will question the pharmacy profession’s current position and discuss international and local evidence on how to move it forward to improve health outcomes at good value for money.
