Good Practice Initiatives

The GPI initiative was launched as part of EAHPs effort to show to stakeholders what European hospital pharmacists are doing, and might also be part of the coming educational programme of EAHP.

The overall purpose of collecting and sharing GPIs is:

  • to inspire and encourage fellow hospital pharmacists in other countries to strive for the next high standard in practice;
  • to identify how colleague hospital pharmacists were able to overcome barriers and obstacles in order to make improvement happen; and,
  • to give recognition to those who have completed successful new initiatives in hospital pharmacy service.

GPIs must be linked to one of the sections of the European Statements of Hospital Pharmacy approved at the European Summit on Hospital Pharmacy in May 2014.

The EAHP statements are separated into the 6 themes below:

  1. Introductory Statements and Governance
  2. Selection, Procurement and Distribution
  3. Production and Compounding
  4. Clinical Pharmacy Services
  5. Patient Safety and Quality Assurance
  6. Education and Research 
Good Practice Initiatives (GPIs) in hospital pharmacy services that do not involve a scientific study can also be submitted online.
 
GPIs submitted during previous congresses may be viewed HERE.
 
IMPORTANT NOTE: To avoid rejection of your GPI during the selection process, please review the submission guidelines and poster guidelines before submitting your GPI.

Additionally, please submit your GPI using an email address that will not be blocked by spam servers. For this reason, we recommend that you use your personal email address to submit your GPI(s), versus the email address from your organisation.
 
GPI presentations

  • Database on the EAHP-webpage

All GPIs approved by the EAHP Scientific Committee (SC) will be uploaded into the GPI database, which can be accessed via the EAHP webpage.

  • Poster presentation at the annual EAHP congress

The EAHP SC will each November identify a number GPIs for poster presentations at the upcoming congress. Ideally all EAHP statements will be represented with a maximum of 5 posters.

The selected GPIs will be printed in the programme book for the congress.

The authors of the GPIs selected for poster presentation will be contacted by the EAHP office for further arrangements. Authors whose GPIs have been accepted must submit a poster during the annual congress.

  • Oral presentation at the annual EAHP congress

The EAHP SC will each November identify GPIs for short oral presentations for the upcoming congress. Ideally 2 GPIs per EAHP statement will be selected.

The selected GPIs will be printed in the programme book for the congress.

The authors of the GPIS selected for oral presentation at the annual congress will be contacted by the EAHP office for further arrangements. Authors whose GPIs have been selected for an oral presentation will need to create both a poster and a power point presentation.

If you have any questions concerning the GPI submission process, please send an email to abstract[at]eahp[dot]eu.
