The Assistant Minister for Rural and Regional Health, the Hon Emma McBride MP, will officially open the Rural Pharmacy Forum as part of the Australian Pharmacy Professional (APP) Conference on the Gold Coast on 23 March 2023. 


APP is the largest pharmacy conference in the southern hemisphere, and attracts more than 6,000 proprietors, pharmacists, interns, students, pharmacy assistants and industry professionals to the Gold Coast each year for networking, upskilling and professional development. 


“As a pharmacist of over 20 years and the only pharmacist in federal Parliament, I’m proud to be opening the Rural Pharmacy Forum at next year’s APP Conference,” the Assistant Minister said. 


“Pharmacists are some of the most trusted healthcare professionals in Australia and this forum is an opportunity for us to discuss the important role pharmacists play in delivering healthcare to people living in rural and remote communities.” 

The 2023 forum theme is Rural Pharmacy - Innovation and Access and will be an opportunity for participants to hear of the first-hand experiences and knowledge of rural community pharmacists on how they ensure their workforce is adapting to provide innovative services for their patients and their communities now and into the future.
