Asia-Pacific Quality Use of Medicines (QUM) Scholarship

Asia-Pacific Quality Use of Medicines (QUM) Scholarship: NPS MedicineWise is an independent, not-for-profit and evidence-based organisation that works to improve the way health technologies, medicines and medical tests are prescribed and used. Established in 1998 with the primary aim of promoting quality use of medicines, today we have grown to connect with health consumers and health professionals nation-wide, changing attitudes and behaviours, and empowering all Australians to make the best possible healthcare decisions when they count.

National Medicine Symposium 2018 is pleased to be offering the Asia-Pacific Quality Use of Medicines (QUM) Scholarship again.

This scholarship provides the opportunity for an academic, health worker or policy maker from the Asia-Pacific region with an interest in quality use of medicines or rational drug use to attend and present their work at NMS 2018.

The scholarship provides complimentary registration for NMS 2018. The winner will provide a 15-minute oral presentation of their work at the symposium.
