This session aims to stimulate pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists to present their work in a short and concise way and get direct feedback from the panel of jury on different aspects of presentation: communication and presentations skills, material used for presentation etc. Session will provide an opportunity for pharmacists to show their research and help both presenters and audience to engage in discussion on the “hot topics” of pharmacy and how different research could be further utilised in different pharmacy practice settings.
