CHINESE NEW YEAR GREETINGS FROM THE PRESIDENT'S DESK
On behalf of the Malaysian Pharmaceutical Society, I would like to wish all members Gung Hey Fat Choy and a very Happy Chinese New Year!!!
Chinese New Year is a time where the family gets together for a great reunion and a time to honor their ancestors. We pharmacist can emulate this beautiful practice this year by coming together as a big large family in May 2017 to honour the journey of our society and celebrate our 50th Anniversary.
MPS hopes that 2017, the year of the fire rooster, brings abundance of joy, luck, success and good health to all our members.

TIMA CONFERENCE 2017
Message from the Organiser:
Dear Healthcare Professionals: Greetings!
In 21st century, as modern healthcare hurtles towards cutting edges technologies, it is timely to revisit holistic medicine which addresses broader roots of illness in healthcare reform.
Our health is determined by complex interaction of genetic, environment, psychosocial and lifestyle. Each of these factors must be considered if holistic healthcare is to be achieved. In order to heal a person and his heart, healthcare with emphasis on humanistic value is of paramount importance. Providing care which respects and tailors to individual needs and preferences should pave the path of humanistic medicine. The paradigm is shifting from doctors doing medicine to the patients, to one where the doctors do medicine with the patients.
"Healthcare Beyond Medicine" aims to ignite the dialogues among our healthcare professionals on the humanistic and holistic approach in the healthcare industry both locally and internationally. It is with hope and firm resolution that this conference will instill and inspire healthcare providers across all cultures, religions and nationalities to embrace the art of humanistic care, to rebuild the trust between the healthcare providers and recipients, and to envision the healthcare profession - beyond medicine.
