    Ienaam Khatib MPS loves being a community pharmacist. But despite only being registered for a year, she’s already questioning how long she can last in the profession. 

    And Ienaam isn’t alone. Across the country, a lack of fair remuneration and little recognition, on top of the pressures of the pandemic, has many pharmacists asking: ‘Is this what I signed up for?’

    In this special episode of Pharmacy & Me, hosts Peter Guthrey and Hannah Knowles get to the heart of the issue, speaking with Ienaam and pharmacy owner Caroline Diamantis MPS about what needs to change when it comes to remuneration.

    They also speak to PSA Public Affairs and Communications manager Candice Burch about how PSA is advocating for pharmacists – and how individual pharmacists can help create change. 

    If you believe pharmacists deserve better remuneration and greater recognition, this is an episode not to be missed.

    It’s something every pharmacist experiences – the exciting, slightly terrifying transition from pharmacy student to intern and then again from intern to registered pharmacist.

    In this episode of Pharmacy & Me, PSA’s NSW Intern of the Year Bridgette Mackley and hosts Peter Guthrey and Hannah Knowles answer some of these questions. Plus, Bridgette shares how she handled the pressures of intern year, her best advice for pharmacy students and interns, and how buying a toothbrush holder changed the course of her career.

    Dr Esa Chen MPS is starting important conversations

    Dr Esa Chen doesn’t shy away from difficult conversations. From diversity and inclusion to gender equity and climate change, she is using her voice to improve the pharmacy profession. 

    Growing up as a Chinese-Malaysian-Australian in country New South Wales, Esa struggled to find people who looked like her. But moving to Melbourne to study pharmacy, and then spending 5 months in Hong Kong as part of her PhD research, made her realise just how much representation matters. 

    In this episode of Pharmacy and Me, Esa speaks with hosts Peter Guthrey and Hannah Knowles about finding her voice, creating change and her best advice for other early career pharmacists who want to tackle the big issues.
