MEMBERS of the Fiji Pharmaceutical Society converged for a mini seminar at the Inter Continental Fiji Golf Resort and Spa yesterday to get an update on laws governing medicinal products.
Society president Arnold Rao said the theme of the seminar — Pharmacy Forensic Updates — was to inform members on issues such as the Fiji Commerce Commission's new pricing structure of medicinal products, the national medicinal products policy, pharmacy profession and good governance.
Members were also updated on the new decrees relevant to their work and the pharmaceutical industry.
"The main idea is to look at the laws or the regulation that governs the pharmacy industry," said Mr Rao.
"Mainly to update our members to understand the new decree and to improve our standard, services and ethical practices.
Mr Rao said the seminar was also aimed at creating networking opportunities among members.
