Common training framework - HP education in Europe

The European Association of Hospital Pharmacists (EAHP), and its 34 member country platforms are creating a common training framework for hospital pharmacy education in Europe.

The framework will support the raising of standards in hospital pharmacy practice and thereby enhance the quality of, safety of, and equity of access to, patient care in every European country.

It will provide a key tool for all countries in delivering the vision of the 44 European Statements of Hospital Pharmacy.

A working group consisting of hospital pharmacy representatives from across Europe undertook an 18 month project to develop an initial draft of a potential common training framework, drawing from existing hospital pharmacy specialization programmes, and the findings of the 2011 Pharmine project.

EAHP is now preparing a pan-European consultation on its contents, according to Delphi principles. The consultation portal open in February 2017.

Registration more about the consultation will close on 20 February 2017.
