About the Journal
The Australian Pharmacy Students' Journal exists to support future pharmacist's research endeavours.
It is the only peer-reviewed pharmacy student journal in the world, providing pharmacy students around the world with the opportunity to develop research skills and publish their work. The Journal accepts submissions from students in the form of original research articles, academic review articles, qualitative research articles, case reports, academic viewpoint, feature articles, and opinion pieces.
Research is a key area that multiple national and international pharmacy bodies have identified as an area to develop in the pharmacy profession. NAPSA believes that targeting this at a student level will increase employability, develop a research culture, and positively impact the future of the profession.
APSJ is a biannual publication - the first edition is published at the end of January after Australia day to tie in with Congress and the second edition is published in the first weekend of July to tie in with NAPSA AGM.
We welcome you to the fourth issue of the Australian Pharmacy Students’ Journal (APSJ).
Pharmacists have a crucial role in ensuring medication safety is upheld throughout the continuum of a patient’s care. The theme of the 2023 Winter Issue of the Australian Pharmacy Students’ Journal (APSJ) is a chance to highlight the pharmacist’s role in promoting the judicious, safe and effective use of medicines.
In this fourth issue of the APSJ, we celebrate the importance of the pharmacist's role in maintaining medication safety. Here, we present some pieces written by local and international pharmacy students on the matter.
In this issue we have 11 pieces, that range from antimicrobial stewardship, culturally appropriate medicines, geriatric medicine, and the evolving roles of the pharmacist.
We invite you to experience medication safety from the lens of our pharmacy students.
