For 20 years, the Pharmacy Assistant National Conference (PA Conference) has been the peak educational and networking event for pharmacy assistants. Held annually each October in Queensland, the conference attracts up to 400 attendees.
The event includes a comprehensive two day education program, a post-conference workshop, an exciting social agenda including the ever-popular themed Conference Dinner, and a trade exhibition featuring 30-plus stands showcasing the latest products, services and industry developments.
