National Medicines Symposium (NMS) 2016 

The ninth National Medicines Symposium (NMS) 2016 was held 19–20 May 2016 at the National Convention Centre in Canberra. Thank you to everyone who came and contributed to make NMS 2016 such an excellent experience.

The theme for NMS 2016 was "Making wise decisions about medicines, tests and technologies". The symposium looked at current and future challenges affecting medicines, tests and the broader health sector. The conference streams were: ‘foundations for success’, ‘sustainable systems’, and ‘in practice’.
