Implementing full scope panel session added to APP2024 program

APP Chairman, Kos Sclavos AM today announced the addition of a panel session on implementing full scope at the Australian Pharmacy Professional Conference and Trade Exhibition (APP2024), which is taking place next week on the Gold Coast.

Titled ‘Integrating Full Scope Pharmacist Services into Community Pharmacy Practice – removing friction points’, the panel session will be held on Saturday morning and will feature North Queensland Full Scope project pharmacists Cate Whalan, Amanda Seeto and Lucy Walker, and the Guild’s Senior Manager – Full Scope Project (Qld), Sara Kemp.

They will be joined by Past National President of Canadian Pharmacists Association and Full Scope Pharmacist, Christine Hrudka, who will lead the discussion.

Facilitated by Mr Sclavos, the panel will cover issues including the key triage role of staff, utilising the consultation room in an optimised way, promoting services externally and to existing patients, and workflow issues in pharmacy.

“What pharmacies need to understand is that consultation room/s will become critical to operational success under full scope,” Mr Sclavos said.

“As an example, pharmacies with pre-booked services such as flu vaccine will now have to incorporate walk-in services that require a consultation, e.g. UTI”.

“Staff will need to triage patients in a role that up until now has not been necessary in pharmacy.”

“This panel will cover such practicalities and other tips needed to be considered for full scope to be integrated into the pharmacy setting.”
