SHPA is the only professional pharmacy organisation with a core base of members practising in public and private hospitals and other health service facilities such as Aboriginal Health Services, residential aged care facilities and general practices.
Our members have extensive experience in specialty clinical areas such as oncology, infectious diseases, mental health, emergency, paediatrics and aged care, and provide cognitive pharmacy services to support the quality use of medicines. SHPA is committed to providing a platform for leading clinicians in specialty practice areas to network, engage and collaborate through SHPA’s Specialty Practice, which has a leading role in providing medicines expertise to SHPA and other stakeholders.
Reflecting our members’ diverse and innovative roles, SHPA also has an expert understanding of the multiple funding and regulatory frameworks with respect to medicines and is well suited to and welcomes the opportunity to provide high quality advice to governments and stakeholders.
SHPA responds regularly to requests for clinical advice relating to medicines and their classifications, safety and information, as well as discussion of Policy submissions.
