As well as the poster presentations we have a wide range of oral presentations and workshops. A satellite symposium entitled Health Psychology and Pharmacy Practice will be taking place on the 2nd of April. The symposium will outline some of the theories used to explain behaviour and how they have been used to design interventions to change behaviour to improve health outcomes. Speakers include Professor Ronan O’Carroll (Stirling University) and Professor Prof Marijn de Bruin (University of Aberdeen).
