Adapting to a Changing Landscape

The dynamic area of health has been marked by constant change this decade, especially in regional, rural, and remote Australia.

The 2024 Rural Pharmacy Forum is a great opportunity to network with colleagues from regional, rural, and remote parts of Australia to discuss the changing landscape and the challenges facing the pharmacy sector.

These discussions will focus on full scope of practice and patient benefits in rural Australia, the challenges of community pharmacy workforce capacity in rural locations as well as the impact of and solutions to Government policies, like 60-Day Dispensing.

Participants of the Rural Pharmacy Forum will be able to discuss and identify solutions to support small business viability and workforce capability of rural and remote community pharmacy in a changing landscape.

There will also be an exciting and interactive workshop to identify key issues, discuss solutions and to inform advocacy for future rural policy direction.

You can also bring your creativity to the forum by entering the 2024 “I Love Rural Pharmacy” video competition by showing how your pharmacy is meeting the theme of adapting and evolving in a changing landscape. Prizes include a full free APP2025 Registration.
