Event description

Description

What is the purpose of the Needle and Syringe Program?
Why should my pharmacy participate in the Needle and Syringe Program?

Within the Northern NSW region, close to 50% of community pharmacies are actively participating in the Needle and Syringe Program (NSP) and there are opportunities to enhance this service throughout the region.

The Pharmacy Guild of Australia (NSW Branch) is pleased to invite you to a complimentary evening workshop which will discuss the importance of NSP in reducing cases of Blood Borne Viruses (BBV) and give pharmacists the confidence to deliver NSP in their community pharmacy.

By the end of the evening, all attendees will develop a strong understanding of the importance of NSP as a public health initiative and will gain the skills to address common barriers and misconceptions of NSP in pharmacy including addressing the stigma associated with drug use and the people who use drugs.

For further information, please call Guild Clinical on (02) 9467 7156 or visit The Pharmacy Guild website at www.guild.org.au
