ANMF Vic Branch Pharmaceutical Waste Webinar

09 June 2022

ANMF (Vic Branch) members and all healthcare staff involved in pharmaceutical administration and disposal are invited to attend this online webinar on the appropriate disposal of pharmaceutical waste.

Attend online via Zoom on Thursday 9 June*, from 11.30am - 12.45pm

This online event attracts 1.15 CPD hours

This webinar will cover:

  • Pharmaceutical waste and its impact;
  • The regulatory and guidance expectations presented by various governing bodies; and
  • An overview of existing tools for supporting the transition to pharmaceutical waste bins - including what options exist for waste disposal, and what challenges have been faced and overcome in introducing them.

Among the speakers will be Grace Wong, founder of Pharmacists for the Environment Australia. Grace Wong became interested in pharmaceutical waste – and its impact on the health of people and the planet – when she was working for Calcutta Rescue, a not-for-profit in India, where she saw firsthand the ‘environmental and human health consequences of pharmaceutical pollution’.

Ms Wong will speak on the importance of appropriate pharmaceutical waste disposal from an environmental and public health perspective.

The complete agenda and information on presenters will be released closer to the date.
