The Summit Agenda

Precision Medicine

Personalised care and pharmacogenomics are both going to have a major impact in pharmacy and healthcare.

We've brought together top experts in these fields to explain exactly what effect they will have.

In the morning, Professor Malcolm Rowland will chair sessions from Professor Claire Shovlin and others, whose models for personalised care and pharmacogenomics have already been highly successful.

In the afternoon, Professor Barrie Kellam will chair sessions from Raliat Onatade and more, looking at what precision medicines mean for pharmacy. They'll explore the value of truly patient-centred care, as well as how they will help to tackle overprescribing.


Digital Health

Digital Health is already a big issue in pharmacy, and it's only going to get bigger.

Join some of the country's top experts and instigators to discover how it will affect you.

In the morning, Professor Sarah Slight, Professor Christopher Yau, and others, will look at the digital transformation and its implications for the workforce.

What does the digital transformation mean for you and your practice?
