Fiat Mist Seminar: Evidence-based Complementary Medicines and Pharmacy

21 August 2018

How can evidence-based complementary medicines be integrated into pharmacy training and practice to ensure the safe and effective use of these products by the public?

The Pharmaceutical Society of Australia strongly encourages all consumers considering taking complementary medicines to first consult their pharmacist for sound, evidence-based advice.

However, the results of a recent Australian study that evaluated pharmacists’ knowledge of complementary medicines concluded:‘Our findings are reflective of international trends and add to the growing body of evidence identifying the barriers to pharmacists’ safe and informative sale of complementary medicines to consumers. This result indicates a requirement for specialised and targeted education focusing on relevant and efficacious complementary medicines with strong clinical evidence-base.’

The evening will be chaired by Professor Parisa Aslani (Professor in Medicines Use Optimisation), School of Pharmacy, Faculty of Medicine and Health, The University of Sydney.

Hear from our speakers and join in the conversation.
