PD breaking news – Health minister confirms initial three Pharmacy Trial programs

First programs to be funded under the $50m trials allocation in the 6CPA.

Health minister Sussan Ley has just delivered the keynote address at the 2016 APP Conference on the Gold Coast, including the announcement of the first three pharmacy programs which will be funded under the Pharmacy Trial program announced as part of the Sixth Community Pharmacy Agreement.

Having initially changed her plans due to illness, Ley soldiered on and arrived at the conference at about 1pm to provide her address as scheduled.

Identified as priorities during the 2015 6CPA negotiations as well as through extensive consultations about the trial program, the initial schemes to be funded will cover improved medication management for Indigenous Australians through pharmacy advice, a pharmacy based screening and referral program for diabetes, and improved continuity in the management of medications after patients are discharged from hospital.

Ley said final details are currently being finalised, telling APP delegates: “I look forward to announcing their commencement in the near future”.

She said the Health Department was also soliciting further suggestions for other trial programs, with a discussion paper to be released calling for further ideas from across the community. Ley urged pharmacists to contribute to this consultation, saying the key objective of all the programs was improved health outcomes for consumers.

Ley also made the formal announcement of Pharmacy 777 Nollamara as the 2016 Pharmacy of the Year.
