Clinical activities undertaken by hospital pharmacists reduce adverse drug events and optimise the safe use of medications. With limited pharmacist resources and increasing hospital admissions, decreasing pharmacist time spent on non-clinical activities is critical. Roles of Australian pharmacy technicians have evolved from supply roles.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
