PSA Viatris Pharmacy Student of the Year (PSOTY)​

 

The Pharmaceutical Society of Australia (PSA) develops the annual Pharmacy Student of the year (PSOTY) counselling competition. This competition is designed to showcase the counselling skills of final year pharmacy students from participating universities around Australia.

 

The PSA’s involvement is aimed at increasing student awareness of PSA and encouraging students to become active, life-long members of this vibrant organisation.

 

The PSOTY competition provides a platform for students to challenge their ability to impart accurate, evidence-based healthcare information and advice to patients using appropriate communication techniques. The competition is based around case scenarios that are designed to reflect real-life practice and to encourage and reinforce the role of the pharmacist as an essential healthcare provider.

 

PSA develops and clinically reviews PSOTY case scenarios (cases) for the NAPSA Wildcard, State/Territory and the Grand Final National competitions. The State/Territory finals are hosted by the PSA State/Territory Offices. The national final is held at the PSA annual national conference in July or August, and is where the pharmacy student of the year is ultimately decided.

 

In the PSOTY competition, students engage in a process similar to an objective structured clinical examination (OSCE) such as they would at the pharmacy board registration exams. The cases involve an interaction with a standardised patient (actor).The pharmacy student provides advice and guidance to this patient and recommends the most appropriate non-prescription medicine, or suggests another outcome such as referral to a general practitioner. A panel of 3–4, mainly practising pharmacists, judge the students’ performance.

PSA Locumate Locum Pharmacist of the Year

 

The PSA Locumate Locum of the Year Award 2024 recognises the incredible impact locum pharmacists make all over Australia.

 

Pharmacists continue to play a key role in our response to the global pandemic, from COVID-19 management and vaccination to medicines, RAT and PPE supply. Locum pharmacists have filled short and long term staffing needs due to increased demand and an overall workforce shortage in the sector.

 

We’d like to shine a light on an outstanding locum pharmacist who has contributed to continued patient-centric care and support over the last 12 months.  The winner will receive a cash prize and will be presented with a certificate at PSA24 National Conference in Sydney on Saturday 3 August 2024.

 

To be eligible, pharmacists must be working on average 5 or more shifts a month undertaking locum work.

Nominations close at 5pm AEST on Friday 24 May 2024
