PSA’s CPExpo returns in 2013


17 September 2012 

The PSA’s Clinical & Practice Expo will return to the Hordern Pavillion, Moore Park (Sydney) from 31 May – 2 June 2013.  The announcement was made by NSW President John Bronger OAM at a launch for pharmaceutical industry and media representatives on Friday, 14 September at Woolwich. 

In making the announcement Mr Bronger said, “Following the overwhelming success of Clinical and Practice Expo 2012 (CPExpo) earlier this year I am proud that the PSA will present yet another clinical and practice focused conference of unparalleled quality in 2013.” 

In excess of 1300 individuals attended CPExpo 2012 which featured 84 professional development workshops and presentations, 55 expert presenters and integrated learning space with 12 patient support groups and more than 40 pharmaceutical companies. 

“CPExpo’s format proved to be particularly useful for pharmacists and exhibitors and have resulted in huge demand for the event to be repeated next year. We will build on the strengths of the first CPExpo so it continues to deliver on its promise of ‘Connecting practice to patient outcomes’,” he said.

Professor Charlie Benrimoj, Chair of the CPExpo Committee, said that CPExpo will be bigger and better than this year, and would be targeted at the changing needs of pharmacists throughout Australia. 

“The focus on the quality use of medicines, therapeutic updates, clinical and professional services will be maintained and built upon,” he said.

“CPExpo will continue to offer a fully comprehensive clinical education program while continuing to provide an enhanced interactive and integrated learning space.” 

Professor Benrimoj said the interactive and integrated learning space would provide those attending CPExpo the opportunity to build on the educational and practice experience through engagement with patient support groups, community and public health organisations. 

“Delegates will also have great access to interact with the medical information and pharmacovigilance departments of major pharmaceutical companies,” Professor Benrimoj said. 

“CPExpo is a dynamic response to the changing and expanding needs of PSA members and the profession.”
