7-8 March 2024 | Hilton Sydney

The agenda will address both of those: from prescribing, to pharmacy, to administration into the community via primary and tertiary care. Key takeaways will include specific types of medication errors and how healthcare organisations have taken action to reduce them through multiple digital health systems. Continuously questioning where Australia’s eMedication journey will head next?
