ON Saturday 22 September Dr Reddy’s organised a free one-day first aid course to help its Queensland community pharmacy customers to develop and refresh their medical skills. The Senior First Aid Training day covered the essentials of first aid including wound management, bite aid and CPR. “Dr Reddy’s hopes that by attending pharmacists can build a better understanding of how to treat patients who attend their stores with first aid issues,” the company said in a statement. The course was accredited by the Australian College of Pharmacy for 20 Group 2 CPD credits.

EBOS says its successful tender to become the exclusive third party distributor of pharmaceutical products to the Chemist Warehouse Group across Australia will boost its funding under the Community Service Obligation to over 40% of the overall pool.
