Full employment for 2010 pre-reg's : 11/07/2011 :

A report published early last week from Graduate Careers Australia (GCA), Graduate Destinations 2010, shows that, in 2010, employment prospects for new higher education graduates (those graduating in 2009) fell for the second year running. However, it also shows that of the 86% of 2009 pharmacy graduates who were seeking full time work, effectively all of them (97%) had it.

These figures relate to graduates (ie pre-reg's) so they don't give us much information about the true state of the (registered) pharmacist employment marketplace, where, anecdotally at least, finding a job is getting harder.

RGH E-Bulletin: The hCG diet : 11/07/2011 :

The topic of this week's RGH E‑Bulletin is The hCG diet.

"Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is a hormone that occurs in the body in large quantities during pregnancy, and pharmaceutical grade hCG is obtained from the urine of pregnant women and used to treat hypogonadism in males and anovulatory infertility in women. In 1954 Dr Albert Simeons, a British physician, published a paper in the Lancet that discussed the use of HCG in the obese. He claimed at that time that injections of hCG enabled a dieter to tolerate a very low calorie diet (VLCD) with a limit of of 500 calories a day. The publication claimed that hCG injections would mobilize stored fat, suppress appetite and redistribute fat from the waist, hip and thighs. There is no scientific evidence to support these claims. To this day, this diet remains heavily promoted via various internet sites.
