A GROUP of Australian pharmacists recently touched down on home soil after an exciting jaunt in the French Alps, at the annual Medici Capital Pharmacy Study Tour. Held in the world-renowned Val d’Isere, France, the Tour focused on pharmacy management, ownership and getting the most out of community pharmacy in the coming year. The conference was structured so that pharmacists could hit the slopes during the day, followed by conference sessions each night.

THE Pharmacy Guild of Australia has formally urged the Queensland government to establish a Pharmacy Council, with the move said to bring the state into line with all other Australian jurisdictions as well as “play an important role in bridging health gaps where pharmacies’ competencies could assist a health system under pressure”.
