Federal Health Minister Sussan Ley has confirmed she will be appearing at APP 2016 on the Gold Coast in March.
Ms Ley will present a keynote address on Thursday 17 March.
APP chairman Kos Sclavos says with many components of the health system under review, the keynote address will be of significant interest to APP attendees.
Mr Sclavos says given this is a Federal Election year, APP provides a timely opportunity for pharmacists to hear from the Federal Minister for Health and to hear the Coalition’s view on community pharmacy .
“With a number of changes to the industry, including the $1 co-payment discount, the continued impact of price disclosure, and professional services opportunities from the 6CPA, the keynote address from the Hon. Sussan Ley will be a ‘not to be missed’ session at APP2016,” he said.
“I am delighted that the Minister will once again be attending APP and look forward to her address”.
Ms Ley will also present the winner of the Pharmacy Guild of Australia’s Pharmacy of the Year Award at APP2016.
