Charnwood Capital Chemist in the Canberra suburb of Charnwood is the 2014 QCPP Pharmacy of the Year. The honour was announced today at the Australian Pharmacy Professional conference (APP) on the Gold Coast. Charnwood Capital Chemist was named the Innovation in Professional Services category winner, and was then judged to be the best pharmacy overall. Owner pharmacist Samantha Kourtis accepted the award on behalf of her team. The awards recognise achievement in community pharmacy across three categories. The categories and this year's winners are: •Capital Chemist Charnwood Pharmacy, ACT -- Innovation in Professional Services & Pharmacy of the Year •Priceline Springwood Pharmacy, NSW -- Excellence in Business Management •Outback Pharmacies Broken Hill, NSW -- Excellence in Community Engagement One of the judges of the competition, Victorian pharmacist Bill Scott said: "While the judging this year was incredibly difficult and there were so many great pharmacies, Charnwood is a clear example of how a dynamic pharmacist, with good local relationships can provide an excellent service and they are a great model that any pharmacy can learn from and deliver a better service. "Like many of the pharmacies this year, Samantha saw that there were needs in the community that weren't being dealt with. For example, because Charnwood is an area where there is a considerable amount of diabetes and circulation problems, Samantha saw that there was a need for compression garments and wound dressings. She joined the Lymphology Assocation and has done the training so that she can be a qualified fitter and provider of these garments and now has excellent inter-professional relationships with a nearby hospital. She deals with the local GPs, everybody in the area, and the pharmacy is known as the go to spot with anything to do with compression garments and wound management in the area. "In the end I would be very proud to have my name associated with any of these three category winners," Bill Scott said. The National President of the Guild, George Tambassis, said: "I am extremely proud of our industry and there is no better showcase of our individual and collective achievements than this rigorously judged and highly respected award." The overall winner and the category winners share in a cash prize, receive a stylish trophy to display in their pharmacy and a professional in-pharmacy photo shoot. The overall winner was deemed by the judges to be the pharmacy that stood out among the finalists and demonstrated achievements across each of the three categories. This year has seen a strong competition, with a tight field producing three worthy winners. The Pharmacy of the Year competition is proudly sponsored by the Quality Care Pharmacy Program, QCPP.

Philadelphians are now 40 percent less likely to drink soda every day- after a tax was placed on sweetened drinks in the city, a new study has shown. The city started taxing sweetened drinks at 1.5 percent per ounce from in January 2017. The money raised was used to pay for community projects, including prekindergarten programs.Now, a study of almost 900 residents surveyed a month before and two months after the tax was enforced has shown that Philadelphians were 40 percent less likely to drink sugary drinks, compared with residents of nearby cities including Trenton, Camden and Wilminton.The likelihood of residents consuming energy drinks every day plummeted by 60 per cent, but they were 58 percent more likely to drink bottled water every day.Recommended Slideshows51In Pictures: The 50 Most Powerful Military Forces in the World44In Pictures: Every U.S. President Ranked From Best to Worst67The Best Pictures Ever Taken in Space The tax did not, however, cut into the consumption of non-carbonated sweetened and fruit-flavoured drinks.Yichen Zhong, a doctoral student at the Dornsife School of Public Health and the lead author of the study, said in a statement: "If distributors fully pass the tax on to customers, it could increase the price of soda and energy drinks by about 20 percent."It is expected that a price increase of that magnitude will influence some consumers to stop purchasing non-essential items like sugary soda and possibly switch to a lower-priced beverage, like bottled water - and our results are in line with that."Commenting on the stable fruit-drink sales, Dr. Amy Auchincloss, an associate professor in the Dornsife School of Public Health and a co-author of the paper, said the team was not sure whether this was because retailers did not raise prices or because consumers chose to pay more for those beverages.“Those drinks may be viewed as healthier than soda despite having the same amount of added sugar, about 10 packets of sugar per 12 ounces," Auchincloss said.The results come as the U.S. attempts to tackle its obesity epidemic. More than one third of U.S. adults are obese, according to the Center for Disease Control. Diseases related to the condition, including heart disease, strokes, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer, are among the leading causes of preventable deaths.Auchincloss stressed that there is ample evidence to show the extra calories in sugary drinks contribute to weight gain."Frequent consumption of sugary beverages has also been linked to higher risk of type-2 diabetes, heart disease and tooth decay. Considering that 30 percent of Philadelphians have at least one sugary beverage each day, any kind of cut in consumption could be impactful,” she said.Aisling Pigott, a qualified dietitian and spokesperson for the British Dietetic Assocation told Newsweek: "This study shows promising results and increased awareness of sugar and sugary drink consumption. Any improvements or awareness of positive lifestyle chang

About 100,000 people in the UK die each year due to smoking. Smoking-related deaths are mainly due to cancers, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and heart disease. About half of all smokers die from smoking-related diseases. If you are a long-term smoker, on average, your life expectancy is about 10 years less than a non-smoker. Put another way, in the UK about 8 in 10 non-smokers live past the age of 70, but only about half of long-term smokers live past 70. The younger you are when you start smoking, the more likely you are to smoke for longer and to die early from smoking.
