THE National Australia Pharmacy Students’ Association held its National Council Second Quarterly Meeting this month at Charles Sturt University’s Wagga Wagga Campus in regional NSW. Distinguished guests at the meeting included Liesel Wett from the PSA and Greg Turnbull from the Guild, who both hosted workshops and stimulated discussion. Major milestones achieved at the meet included the approval of the final draft of the NAPSA Rural and Indigenous Position Statement, as well as approval for criteria for the NAPSA Best Branch award. The NAPSA 2011-12 National Council is pictured above at the Quarterly Meeting in Wagga.
PHARMACISTS recruited by NSW Health, as part of a State Budget announcement, should be allocated to different areas of practice and “not just hospitals”, the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia (PSA) believes.
