EAHP Congress 2022 - Vienna - AC26

 

Dear Colleagues,

It is a great pleasure and a humbling honour to invite you all to the 2022 EAHP Annual Congress, a year in which we will also celebrate our association’s 50th anniversary. While these unprecedented times have turned our world upside down, our profession has prevailed and hospital pharmacists have never ceased to proactively adapt to a changing world in order to continuously serve our patients’ best interests.

Our team at EAHP has resiliently continued to work hard for our upcoming 2022 Congress, so that the hospital pharmacist community of Europe and beyond could finally get together in person and join us in celebrating EAHP’s 50th anniversary. We are delighted to offer you an unforgettable experience along with a valuable learning and networking opportunity. On March 23rd 2022, when Spring will be already shining its heart-warming light on the Danube Valley, our congress will again open its gates for you in Vienna.

The capital of Austria is one of the most charming, elegant, history-rich and yet excitingly cosmopolitan cities in Europe. Embracing its historic roots, it offers everything one could expect for a modern cosy city life. This gorgeous city of immense cultural heritage will be our host, providing an impressive background to our Anniversary Congress.

Spring, being the season of awakening, a period when nature applauds life with colourful diversity, I firmly believe that all of us will gather to celebrate the opportunity to meet up in person again and to commemorate all the losses the pandemic has made us endure. This new beginning will also bring about vast scientific novelties and practical knowledge upon which we can further develop and strengthen our services for our patients, in Europe and beyond. Therapeutic possibilities are growing rapidly in several disease groups, including those for which treatment options have been seriously limited for many decades. These emerging therapeutic modalities have brought about many challenges for hospital pharmacists and they keep changing the way pharmacy services are delivered. Hospital pharmacists have to acquire more knowledge related to immunology, infection control, the human genome, cell regulation and much more... Besides these novel therapeutic areas, our emerging competencies of frontline patient care in the clinical setting call for new and changing roles of our profession. These "high tech" modalities, going hand-in-hand with the irreplaceable personal touch of pharmaceutical care are paving the way towards the future of our profession.

Besides the professional and methodological challenges, healthcare systems all over the world have to find a way to employ these new possibilities with the limited resources that are available. That rather complex issue calls for a deep involvement and input from hospital pharmacists as well. I am sure that the scientific programme at the Congress will help all of us to face these challenges and find valid answers.

Furthermore, your time with us in Vienna will also be an ideal opportunity to meet your fellow colleagues, exchange experiences and knowledge, and find new professional connections and friends.

50 years is a long time in the life of an association, as is in the life of a person. EAHP, during these tumultuous years, has been through thick and thin with challenges, accomplishments, losses and victories along its path. We have never ever forgotten our main mission and we never will: it is our duty to enable hospital pharmacists to make a difference in our patients’ lives with their safe medication as our top priority.

I am very much looking forward to meeting you in Vienna!

Dr. Andras Sule, EAHP President (Hungary)
