NAPSA Congress draws a crowd

14 February 2024

This year’s National Australian Pharmacy Students’ Association (NAPSA) congress has been declared a success after it was held in Hobart last month.

One hundred and fifty students from around the country attended the five-day event which began with the keynote speech by Guild National President, Professor Twomey.

In his address to delegates, Professor Twomey reflected that NAPSA set the path for his life both professionally and personally; it was at NAPSA where he met his wife, Georgina.

Also speaking at the Congress was Tasmanian Pharmacy Guild Branch President Helen O’Byrne who shared her vision of what the future of pharmacy will look like.

The Congress also held several workshops which were organised and sponsored by the Guild.

These included the ‘Rx for Success’ workshop to help future community pharmacists navigate the challenges of pharmacy ownership and maintaining a healthy balance sheet.

There was also a workshop called ‘Know Your Worth’, designed to help fresh pharmacists handle the important issue of negotiating pay and conditions with an employer.

A third workshop titled ‘Empowering Future Pharmacists’ was designed to help pharmacy students explore home medicine reviews and scope of practice.

The Guild was also the bag sponsor for the trade stall at the Congress.

The event rounded off with one of its true highlights, the NAPSA Congress Gala Ball.
