OA Attends Pharmacy Guild Conference
Osteoporosis Australia hosted an education booth at the Pharmacy Guild of Australia’s annual conference on the Gold Coast (17-20 March). The event gathered together pharmacists from across Australia for education updates and a review of current issues in the sector.
The Osteoporosis Australia booth was well attended and CEO Greg Lybomirsky said, “Pharmacists play a key role in helping osteoporosis patients to adhere to medication and provide important advice on calcium and vitamin D issues.”
Mr Lyubomirsky said, “Pharmacists are ideally placed to recognise risk factors in patients and start a discussion about their bone health. This is critical in helping to reduce unwanted fractures from osteoporosis.”
