About the seminars
PHARMAC seminars are clinically-relevant educational sessions for NZ health professionals.
Seminars cover a diverse range of topics presented by experts in their fields. Participants share in a full day of the latest information to stay up-to-date with current practice and research. You can choose to attend in person or watch online at a time that suits you.
The seminars provide a great opportunity to network with other health professionals from around the country and share information and ideas in an environment that isn’t always possible in busy clinical settings.
Who are they for?
Seminars are open to any interested NZ health professional to attend.
Spaces at the seminars are limited to 30 attendees, so preference will be given to health professionals who:
- are working in areas specifically related to the seminar topic, and
- haven't previously attended a PHARMAC seminar.
Professional development CME/CPD
Attendance at seminars contributes towards continuing professional development for:
- GPs – PHARMAC seminars are accredited by the RNZCGPs as a CME provider
- nurses – receive a certificate: 6 hours = 6 points
- midwives – selected seminars are accredited by the Midwifery Council
- pharmacists – can be used as Group 1 Learnings.
Watching the seminar videos and completing learning reflections about them also counts as professional development.
For participants who attend seminars in person:
- PHARMAC covers the cost of travel to and from seminars (including flights) and accommodation when required.
- Participants are charged $115.00 (GST inclusive) as a contribution towards the cost of running the seminar.
Watching the online versions of the seminars is free.
The Advisers for the PHARMAC seminars come from a range of disciplines and have the responsibility of determining the topic and content of each session.
