What does the conference theme “Do More” mean to you?
“Do More” to improve equity of access for children – to medicines and to clinical pharmacy services.

Why are you excited about participating in MM2017?
Medicines Management Conferences are always inspiring and lots of fun. I come away with ideas that I am able to put into practice in my work place.

Where do you see pharmacy in 10 years?
We will finally have an integrated medical record for all patients. Pharmacists will be included in all new health services. We will be concentrating more on keeping patients out of hospital and caring for them at home, using every piece of technology available to us.
