We are proud to announce the collaboration between the Pacific Region Infectious Diseases Association (PRIDA), Diagnostic Microbiology Development program (DMDP) and Therapeutic Guidelines (TG) to bring together an online clinical pharmacy and infectious disease management course for hospital pharmacists in Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands and Timor-Leste in July 2021.
The Pacific Region Infectious Diseases Association (PRIDA) are a group of medical and biomedical healthcare professionals who work in the Pacific Region in a voluntary capacity with an aim to improve diagnosis, management and prevention of infectious diseases.
The Diagnostic Microbiology Development Program (DMDP) are a team based in Cambodia who seek to build capacity for infectious diseases diagnosis by strengthening the infrastructure and technical capabilities of laboratory staff in clinical microbiology, biochemistry and hematology and by strengthening the capacity of health care providers to accurately diagnose infectious diseases, primarily in low resource settings.
Therapeutic Guidelines (TG) is an organisation which develops independent Australian guidelines for a wide range of topics. The TG Partnership Program aims to support the quality use of medicines and the development and distribution of guidelines in low resource settings, usually in low- and middle-income countries.
We are seeking hospital pharmacists with a special interest and expertise in infectious diseases and antimicrobial stewardship (AMS) to provide ongoing mentorship and support to the pharmacists of the Pacific Island Countries participating in the online clinical pharmacy and infectious disease management course.
