Welcome to Barcelona, the city of the bizarre and colourful architecture by Antoni Gaudí!
EAHP is pleased to invite you to the 19th congress of our association, an event that continues to be an excellent opportunity to meet colleagues, learn the newest developments of the hospital pharmacist profession and join the industry exhibition. The scientific committee is already in the process of developing the 2014 programme around an exciting topic: “The innovative hospital pharmacist – imagination, skills and organization”.
To look on innovation is a part of leadership, to judge the value of innovation requires comprehensive skills and to implement innovation is a challenge. Hospital pharmacists must be part of it and I am sure that after the congress you will have received much inspiration for your daily work.
“We are responsible for what will happen in the future”, Karl Raimund Popper said and J.A. Schumpeter added, “Innovation is creative destroying”. We have to abandon some sloppy tradition to move on and let the future happen, but we have also to do it with sensible and well weighted action. Working together with other professionals and our colleagues in primary care is paramount in achieving that goal. We can really only innovate by understanding the different perspectives of other professions and the needs of our patients.
Barcelona is a good location to discuss innovation: the modern part of this city and the liberty style of the buildings by Gaudí merge the past and future in a unique way. Enjoy the experience of visiting the “Sagrada Familia”, the UNESCO World Heritage Site still under construction, walk along the famous promenade of Barcelona and have a rest in the Parc Güell admiring the city from the top of the hill. Upon your return home you will treasure your time with EAHP and the city of Barcelona withonly fond memories.
See you in Barcelona! Roberto Frontini, EAHP President
