PDA attend Clinical Pharmacy Congress

The PDA attended CPC earlier this month to talk to pharmacists about the issues that affect them at work. We exhibited on stand C15 and were excited to talk to existing and potential members about how we can further support them in their career.

On day one of CPC, Alima Batchelor, PDA Head of Policy and Liz Brooke, PDA Primary Care Pharmacist, led a session entitled ‘GP Practice Pharmacy, everything you need to know about safer practice, but were too afraid to ask’. Here, Alima and Liz shared their expertise by highlighting things pharmacists must consider to practice more safely. Using real examples, they shared some key insights on potential pitfalls.

On day two of CPC, Mark Koziol, PDA Chairman, led a state backed indemnity session entitled ‘Let’s talk about Indemnity, what do you really need to know?’. In this session, Mark outlined the key requirements you need from your indemnity provider and the benefits of support and indemnity from a membership defence association such as the PDA.

Our final session at CPC was the Women in Pharmacy Leadership Lunch Symposium which focused on the barriers to engagement and what can be done to get more women involved in pharmacy leadership at every level. This panel discussion, chaired by Claire Ward, PDA Director of Public Affairs, brought together leading women from a variety of backgrounds within the sector.
