Register for 31st Singapore Pharmacy Congress

On behalf of the Pharmaceutical Society of Singapore (PSS) and the 31st Singapore Pharmacy Congress (SPC) Organising Committee, we would like to invite you to our annual event, held as a hybrid congress where delegates may choose to attend physically at the Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre or virtually on our online platform.

The Collaborative Prescribing Program Pre-Congress workshop was a great success during the 20th Asian Conference on Clinical Pharmacy. It was attended by many international delegates, one of whom was Ms Janet Wong, a lecturer from University of Hong Kong (HKU). Ms Wong later reached out to the organisers for collaboration as she saw the benefit of incorporating this workshop into HKU’s Master of Clinical Pharmacy Programme.

The pre-congress workshop co-chairpersons, Dr Lim Paik Shia and Dr Fu Wing Hang were subsequently invited to organise a virtual skills training workshop in collaboration with HKU lecturers – Ms Janet Wong and Mr Marco Lee. During the planning phase, they were actively involved in sharing valuable teaching experiences with the HKU lecturers and ensuring the smooth execution of the workshop via Zoom.

In June 2022, a report was published by the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) titled "The Role of Pharmacists in Iron Deficiency Anaemia". This report was the result of a roundtable discussion involving participants from five FIP member organisations, including the Pharmaceutical Society of Singapore.

PSS would like to thank Dr Chuang Shen Hui and Dr Priscilla How for sharing their valuable insights during this session, and for promoting the expansion of pharmacists' roles for the advancement of the pharmacy profession.
