MESSAGE FROM THE ORGANISING COMMITTEEDear Friends,
Warm greetings from the 26th Singapore Pharmacy Congress Organising Committee! It gives us great pleasure to invite you to the 26th Singapore Pharmacy Congress on “Patients – Our Partner in Care” to be held at the Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre on 8-9th October 2016.
For the first time, the congress will bring in patients’ voice so that participants can understand first-hand from patients and their caregivers about their needs and expectations of care for now and tomorrow. These insights will drive the design of future model(s) of care, which will better address the needs of patients and caregivers. This change is much needed in view of the rapidly ageing population and changes in disease pattern. This will require a successful partnership of pharmacy staff, other healthcare professionals, academics, industry partners, regulators, researchers and payers.
With this in mind, the congress will engage all relevant stakeholders, including patients, to provide an excellent platform to discuss development in care integration and pharmacy practice models leveraging on advancements in medicines, practices, technology, workforce and legislation. With a diverse range of plenary lectures, symposia, workshops, oral (free papers) and poster presentations, this congress will serve as a forum for the exchange of information, best practices, concepts and ideas.
It is our hope that this congress will provide a different perspective in shaping tomorrow’s healthcare. So do join us for a weekend of exciting programmes and the opportunity to network with your fellow congress delegates and friends from Singapore and overseas.
We look forward to meeting you at the 26th Singapore Pharmacy Congress.
