Pharmacy Education Symposium

Monash Education Symposium 2023/2024 – Agents of Change

The 11th Monash University Pharmacy Education Symposium was scheduled to take place in July 2021, in keeping with the biennial approach taken over the last 20 years. However, due to the worldwide impact of COVID-19, this Symposium is planned to take place at the Monash Prato Centre, Italy, in 2023 or 2024.

Pharmacists are key members of the healthcare team and often work in teams in the interest of patient care. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has seen many instances of health professionals needing to adapt in a time of crisis in order to optimise patient care and pharmacy education.

Thus, the theme for the 2023/2024 symposium will be “Agents of Change”. This theme presents a unique opportunity to explore how the unprecedented changes in healthcare and pharmacy education as a result of the pandemic have seen adaptations in the way in which we teach and assess, as well as pharmacists working in a broader scope of practice to respond to increased healthcare needs. Delegates will have the opportunity to showcase their education research and practice initiatives, particularly in the context of how they have been agents of change. Opportunities will also exist for delegates to be involved in developing new frameworks for pharmacy education and practice in a variety of areas, such as the use of simulation in pharmacy education.
