A partnership promoting eye health and vision care

Vision Initiative

For pharmacists

Pharmaceutical Society of Australia logoPharmacists are often the first health professional people turn to with a health query. Pharmacists can give health advice to the local community. A trusted local pharmacist provides a friendly, non-judgemental ear and plays a key role as an intermediary between doctor and patient.

‘Working “eye-to-eye” with optometry for better patient care’

is a free online webinar developed in partnership with the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia (PSA) – Victorian Branch in 2018, to provide the most up to date information on eye health and vision care for practising Victorian pharmacists.
