NPS Medicinewise National Medicines Symposium 2014 Conference Report Medicines in Health: Shaping Our Future

Pat Branford, HCCA Consumer Representative, attended the National Prescribing Service (NPS) MedicineWise National Medicines Symposium in late 2014. The theme of the conference was ‘Medicines in Health: Shaping Our Future’.

The conference was held over three days with three different plenary sessions, these were:

1) Medicines in health: shaping our future – sessions were focussed on taking a long range view of medicines in health from the perspective of individual consumers, health professionals, the broader health system and our future society;
 2) Sustainability – future sustainability of medicines in terms of cost, benefit, access, quality and safety and investment in an increasing competitive market; and
 3) The implementation experience – looking at real world challenges in translating evidence into action and positively shape the future.

HCCA will be featuring in separate blog posts a rundown of each of the days which can be found at the following links:
