content Counterfeit medicines (Counterfeit Meds) Ms. Yoko Gocho The spread of counterfeit medications is a dangerous development in the pharmaceutical and medical field. Counterfeit medications can apply to both branded and generic products and include the following: products with either correct or incorrect ingredients, without active ingredients, with insufficient active ingredient or with fake packaging. It is a serious concern in both developing and developed countries. Counterfeit medications are illegal and may be harmful to your health. There is more harm than good, associated with counterfeit medicine. How can we break this vicious cycle? IPSF has developed an Anti-Counterfeit Drug Campaign to raise public awareness of the severity and consequences associated with counterfeit medicine. Workshop Speaker The content Cosmetics Akiko Nishioka When choosing the right make-up, what does one need to take into consideration? What ingredients are beneficial or harmful to the skin? The word cosmetic comes from the Greek word kosmos meaning world/worldly. The concept of cosmetics was first introduced by the Ancient Egyptians, with the aim of looking more desirable by hiding their faults and blemishes. Of

The 12th Asia Pacific Pharmaceutical Symposium 2013 in JAPAN course, the idea of beauty has changed with the times and thus, the types of make-up used. However, the ultimate desire in improving our physical appearance will never change. Workshop Speaker The content Pre Patient Counselling Event (Pre-PCE) Eric So Patient Counselling Event (PCE) is one of IPSFs oldest competitions and workshops. As the practice of pharmacy continues to evolve, the role of the pharmacist will become crucial in delivering patient-cantered care. PCE aims to provide a broad-base overview of what a clear, concise, and patient-friendly counselling should be to ensure effective and safe delivery of drug therapy. The importance of information gathering from the patient and the tailoring of counseling to the patients understanding are demonstrated through several clinical cases. In the competition event, the participants are given a clinical case and a scenario in which they are to counsel a patient-actor. The participants are given verbal and written feedback using the criteria as set out in the workshop. There are two levels, Beginners, for those who have had minimal counselling experience during their studies, and Advanced, for those who are nearing graduation and with more experience. The winners of each level will be presented with an award during the Closing Ceremony. Workshop Speaker The content Community Pharmacy (ComPharm) Mr. Takayuki Shinagawa What services can pharmacists provide to help improve patients self-medication techniques?

Pre Clinical Skills Event (Pre CSE) Eric So The Clinical Skills Event (short CSE) is one of the events within the pharmaceutical development department of IPSF. The concept goes back to the American Society of Health-Systems Pharmacists (ASHP) and is now one of the elements of the World Congress as well as the regional symposium. So what exactly is CSE? It is a competition, in which students all around the globe try to use their clinical knowledge to solve cases related to patients drug safety. It was created to encourage pharmacy

The 12th Asia Pacific Pharmaceutical Symposium 2013 in JAPAN students to develop their clinical problem-solving, verbal and written communication skills, and to promote the role of the pharmacist in patient care. During the CSE you will have to solve seven different cases, with each case designated 7 minutes, and all cases are related to clinical pharmacy. For some of them you will receive references, and some have to be solved with the knowledge you already have got. Workshop Speaker The content Contact Person Workshop (CP) Dora Lee This workshop is targeted to current and future CPs, who wish to share their experience as a CP and/or to learn new skills and knowledge from their fellow peers. Being the CP of your association is a vital role because the CP is the individual who is responsible for ensuring that all ideas, messages, discussions and materials needed for projects are received and sent to the appropriate parties. The success of these projects is dependent on the communication skills of the CP. During this workshop, participants will be: 1) Introduced to the role of the CP, why the role of a CP exists and the necessity of this position within the association as well as a member of the RWG and IPSF. 2) Introduced to the role that pharmaceutical students and young pharmacists can play in the international health field, including being active participants in projects run by IPSF and the WHO.

The 12th Asia Pacific Pharmaceutical Symposium 2013 in JAPAN Day 2 9:00-10:30 Workshop Speaker The content Health Economics Mr. Ataru Igarashi Since 1961, all Japanese citizens have had access to effective medicines at an affordable price because of the government endorsed National Health Insurance (NHI) policy. The NHI covers more than 98% of medicines on the current market. The Chu-I-kyo (the governments Central Social Insurance Medical Council) are responsible for setting the reimbursement prices of medications as well as determining which medications are covered. During the decision process, the Council make their decisions based on the safety and efficacy of the nominated medications. However, the financial costs of these drugs are not a primary determining factor. Beyond Japan, other countries in the Asia-Pacific region that require pharmacoeconomic data as part of its decision process for health insurance coverage include Australia, Taiwan, Thailand and the Republic of Korea, with mainland China currently in discussion about its implementation. Since 1992, legislation has made it a legal responsibility of pharmaceutical companies to enclose pharmacoeconomic data or cost-effectiveness data for all new medications but realistically, this has affected for less than 5% of all new medications released. To ensure that citizens have access to affordable medications in the future, it is the governments responsibility to keep control of the healthcare budget. The Japanese government has begun to implement various evaluations of the public health insurance coverage and its relevant pricing system.

The 12th Asia Pacific Pharmaceutical Symposium 2013 in JAPAN In April 2012, a new committee on health economic evaluation was established under the chu-i-kyo. However, this committee will not undertake its full role until April 2014 or the next reimbursement price revision; whichever comes first. During this workshop, Mr Igarashi will discuss: The concept of pharmacoeconomics Role of health economic evaluation Current issues in medication pricing & reimbursement scheme

The role of the pharmacist in diabetes management (Diabetes) Mr. Isao Saito Type 2 diabetes (non-insulin dependent diabetes) is one of the main non-communicable diseases seen in pharmacies and its global prevalence continues to increase. According to the International Diabetes Federation in 2011, 366 million

The 12th Asia Pacific Pharmaceutical Symposium 2013 in JAPAN people were diagnosed with diabetes, with this number expected to increase to 552 million by 2020. Currently, Asian countries are responsible for contributing more than 60% of the worlds diabetic population. Although genetics is a factor, stronger risk factors include the increasing sedentary lifestyle many individuals lead, which includes a lack of physical activity and poor nutrition, leading to obesity and other non-communicable diseases. Diabetes is a particular concern in the juvenile population, with an increasing number of children being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes In 2011, US$465 billion was spent globally on healthcare for diabetics, which equates to 11% of total healthcare expenditures in adults. The need to ensure adequate funding in spent on diabetic care as well as balancing other healthcare expenditure is a continuing issue, and one unlikely to resolve easily. Additionally, effective management of a diabetic patient is difficult, with many diabetic patients developing further co-morbidities such as hypertension, and thus achieving optimal health is a challenging and long process. In light of the increasing burden of diabetes, many governments, health departments and organisations are placing a strong focus on the prevention. As pharmacists, we are in a strong position of helping the community in taking affirmative action. During this workshop, participants will: Learn about the diagnosis criteria of diabetes and associated risk factors Learn about diabetics current management practices of

Discuss how pharmacists are involved in taking

The 12th Asia Pacific Pharmaceutical Symposium 2013 in JAPAN Day 2 11:00-12:30 Workshop Speaker The content Self-management & Pharmacy: How pharmacists can help improve self-management Kohei Shoji For patients to be proactive in self-medicating and being actively involved in the management of their own health, knowing their health statistics is an important determinant. For example, patients who are aware of their blood pressure readings may be more concerned in maintaining optimal blood pressure. Popular campaigns that have an impact are the ones that aim to increase the participants interest in the self -management of their health. Checking patients blood pressure, their blood glucose levels and conducting a primary lung age test are all strong factors in enhancing a patients interest to their health. This workshop will be focusing on the different types of services pharmacists can implement in improving a patients awareness and interest in their health. Although each country provides different types of services and the role of the pharmacist may vary, ultimately they all have the same goal. This workshop will be a strong foundation for the official campaign, which will be held during APPS. Workshop participants are encouraged to be proactive during the campaign and to act as leaders to their peers during the campaign.

The need for at-home medical care (At-home care) Mr. Hiroshi Hasegawa Overall, the world is an ageing population and the need for increased care of the elderly is a strong concern. Japan will be one of the first countries in the world to have a dominantly large elderly population. By 2060, over 40% of the population will be aged at least 60 and this trend is expected to be reciprocated across the globe. This workshop will introduce the current management plans implemented for individuals receiving at-home medical care. In this setting, the role of the pharmacist is unique when compared to the traditional role of working in a hospital or industrial environment. As the need for at-home healthcare workers increases, the need for services provided by pharmacists will also be in demand. But are current action plans feasible and practical for the future? Will the pharmacists role change? Is at-home

The 12th Asia Pacific Pharmaceutical Symposium 2013 in JAPAN Day 3 9:00-10:30 Workshop Speaker The content Team approach to healthcare (Allied healthcare) Chiaki Iizuka Pharmacists are just one type of health professional in the complex medical field. Pharmacists must work collaboratively with other healthcare professionals for patients to receive optimal care. In Japan, the role of the pharmacist in an allied health team setting may vary depending on each situation. For example, pharmacists working with other health professionals in a hospital ER may have different responsibilities to those working in palliative care. The skills and knowledge of pharmacists may also range differently in each area. Overall, the composition of allied health teams may vary across each country but they all primarily address the health needs of the local population. Workshop Speaker The content Global Health Dr. Tamotsu Nakasa What is Global Health & Global Co-operation? Every country has its own challenges in delivering appropriate healthcare to its residents. As pharmacists, we need to ensure optimal healthcare is delivered in a manner, which respects the regions culture, lifestyle and approach to medicine and healthcare. The theme of this workshop is Drug logistics in Global Health and has been designed in association with the Japan Association of International Health, Student Section.

The 12th Asia Pacific Pharmaceutical Symposium 2013 in JAPAN During the two workshops, we will be discussing: How medications are used in different regions and in different contexts What role pharmaceutical companies play in Global Health

**Please note, this workshop is run over two sessions. Participants interested in registering for this workshop must register for both workshop periods. Workshop Speaker The content Generic Medicines (Generics) Mr. Keiichi Chin Are you confident in understanding the difference between branded medications and its generic? Once a branded medications patent is expired, the molecule of this medication becomes available to all pharmaceutical companies. For example, once Pfizers patent for Lipitor expired recently, the compound atorvastatin was widely popularised by many other different companies, thus reducing the cost of this medication quite drastically. A generic medication provides the same quality and efficacy as a branded medication, but at a reduced cost than its branded counterpart. Many health departments and governments prefer to use generic medications in the budget because the overall cost of medications and medical care can be lowered. However, not all individuals believe that a generic medication is as safe and efficacious as the branded drugs and thus, education is the key component in ridding these myths and rumours.

The 12th Asia Pacific Pharmaceutical Symposium 2013 in JAPAN During this workshop, participants will: Learn about the current role generic medicines have in healthcare, and the challenges involved Discuss and compare the financial differences of generic vs branded medicines in the pharmaceutical industry

Over-The-Counter Medications (OTC Meds) Mr. Motohito Nishizawa Over-the-Counter (OTC) medications play an integral role in self-medication. They are easily accessible and can be commonly found in community pharmacies. However, not all patients are aware of the associated side effects and possible consequences from these medications since they can be bought without a doctors prescription. One of the key duties as a pharmacist is to ensure that customers are aware of, and understand the use of OTC products. As the population continues to age and there is increasing demand for effective healthcare, including access to doctors and healthcare services, OTC medications will become an increasingly popular choice of self-treatment. During this workshop, participants will learn about the range of OTC products available and their role in treatment. Additionally, participants are encouraged to discuss and critically analyse the role a pharmacist has in supplying (and possibly denying) OTC products.
