CoAcS have regularly sponsored the BPSA annual conference. We recognise the importance of the event because students are the lifeblood and future of the pharmacy profession. Our CAL packages, ePMRx and the websites are all useful resources to undergraduates (and beyond!) and we had the opportunity to speak about them to the attendees on the MedEx day yesterday. The presentation explained our background and pedigree in the educational arena. We also looked at the current offerings and where teaching is going. We thank all those who attended and then spoke to us on the stand after lunch. It was great to meet you all. Thanks too for the Easter egg!!

CoAcS will be attending the annual UKMi conference to be held at the Burlington Hotel in Birmingham. Come and talk to us about our services and learn more about MiDatabank, the Sharer and MiCAL v17 (which is now available). We're always keen to meet up with customers and to share a few comments and ideas.

MiCAL V17 continues to maintain its Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) quality mark as an accredited training tool for pharmacists and the wider healthcare team. This shows UKMi’s commitment to supporting the future development of the professions and the wider healthcare team.

Short for Commercial and Academic Services, CoAcS is delighted to now be officially 25 years old. CoAcS was formed in 1992 by a group of businessmen and academics who were passionate about pharmacy and learning. This naturally translated into the provision of pharmacy software for education and healthcare purposes.

CoAcS recently supported the Duphat pharmacy conference held in Dubai 7-9th March. We had a stand with our own software products and met some existing customers besides making new friends. We also used the opportunity to promote MedicinesComplete. We have an exclusive agreement with the Pharmaceutical Press in the ME region to sell subscriptions to their 24 databases.

One of our long standing users – Mair Martin – has kindly written to remind us about a key milestone in MiDatabank history…. “This week is a celebration of 10years of MiDatabank here in North Wales and presumably in most of Wales as well. Some newer to MI staff might not realise this, hence the e-mail which I thought might be quite interesting."

CoAcS is pleased to announce that a new smart phone app is available for download that will enable students to make a brief note about a possible CPD item, while off line, which could then be automatically transferred to their CPD Online record when back on line.

The 74th BPSA annual conference is being held at Cardiff University this week.

Running from the 20-27th March, CoAcS sponsored the Welcome event on opening Sunday night. This is a great opportunity to meet with friends and colleagues!

CoAcS will be attending the MedEx day on Wednesday 23rd. We will be telling delegates about the College of Pharmacy resources and the student CPD system. We also have a new 'Aide Memoire' app to show.

The latest MiDatabank ADR reporting figures from the MHRA have been compiled and supplied to CoAcS via the UKMi. Whilst ADRs are regrettable, their reporting (using the Yellow Card system) is crucial to increasing patient safety. In summary, 2,949 reports were made via MiDatabank up to 31st December 2015. See below for more details.
