10 things Aussie pharmacists must be paid for

Pharmacists must be paid to treat UTIs and shingles and to provide emergency contraception.

That’s the consensus of a panel of international pharmacy leaders, who have come up with a list of must-have remunerated programs for Australian pharmacy.

Here are ten of the core programs they came up with at Pharmacy Connect over the weekend:

  1. Treatment of minor ailments and acute conditions such as UTIs and shingles.
  2. Emergency contraception.
  3. Expanded vaccinations, such as pneumococcal and shingles.
  4. Pharmacogenetic testing for high-cost medicines.
