WELCOME TO THE NEW EAHP BOOST! 


In the dynamic landscape of contemporary healthcare, where technology continues to revolutionize patient care, the European Association of Hospital Pharmacists (EAHP) presents a symposium aimed at "Humanizing the high-tech pharmacy". Over two enlightening days, this symposium will delve into the intersection of advanced automation and the human touch in pharmacy practice.

  • The symposium commences with a plenarykeynote lecture addressing the "Management perspective on automatization"followed by two tracks on compounding and dispensing. Esteemed speakers will offer insights into how automated systems can enhance operational efficiency while preserving the essential role of human expertise in hospital pharmacy management.
  • The first seminar block, "Automation in reconstitution and production of medicines", examines cutting-edge technologies shaping pharmaceutical manufacturing within hospital settings. Here, the spotlight shines on the role of robots in Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN) production and cytotoxic reconstitution. By harnessing robotic precision, pharmacists can ensure the accuracy and sterility of complex medication preparations, reducing the risk of errors and enhancing patient safety. Furthermore, discussions will delve into the integration of automated quality control measures, optimizing the efficiency of production processes while upholding stringent regulatory standards.
  • In parallel, the second seminar block, "Bedside dispensing services and pharmaceutical care", shifts the focus to patient-centered pharmacy services. Experts will explore the integration of automated unit-dose production systems, empowering pharmacists to deliver tailored medication regimens directly at the bedside. Additionally, discussions on the utilization of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in drug information management and pharmaceutical care highlight the transformative potential of AI-driven technologies. By leveraging AI algorithms for data analysis and clinical decision support, hospital pharmacists can streamline medication management processes, identify potential drug interactions, and personalize treatment plans to meet the unique needs of each patient. This fusion of technology and human expertise not only enhances patient safety but also facilitates proactive pharmaceutical care delivery, fostering closer ph4armacist-patient collaborations and optimizing therapeutic outcomes.

Throughout the symposium, attendees will engage in thought-provoking discussions, sharing best practices and innovative approaches to harnessing technology for the betterment of patient outcomes.

To provide an accessible interactive discussion forum, the workshops are organised in 'world cafe' style and divided into beginners, advanced and experts.

By merging high-tech advancements with compassionate pharmacy practice, this symposium endeavors to redefine the role of hospital pharmacists as indispensable members of the healthcare team, dedicated to humanizing the patient experience in an increasingly automated world.

Accreditation

 

The European Association of Hospital Pharmacists (EAHP) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing pharmacy education.

 is the American agency for accreditation of professional degree programmes in pharmacy and providers of continuing pharmacy education, including certificate programmes in pharmacy. Accreditation is the public recognition granted to a professional degree programme in pharmacy or a provider of continuing pharmacy education, including certificate programmes in pharmacy that is judged to meet standards through periodic evaluations.

Note that only seminars and keynote presentations are accredited. Click on the ACPE logo to visit the website of the Accreditation Council  for Pharmacy Education.   

How can participants receive their ACPE certificates

In order to receive your ACPE accreditation points, what you have learnt during this session will be assessed.

Please note that the ACPE certificate will not be sent automatically, but upon request only. EAHP will send you the certificate within 15 days after receiving your request.

For licensed pharmacists and pharmacy technicians for the USA

ACPE and the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) are developing a continuing pharmacy education (CPE) tracking service, CPE Monitor, that will authenticate and store data for completed CPE units received by US-licensed pharmacists and pharmacy technicians from ACPE-accredited providers as the EAHP. This service will be particularly helpful to the growing number of pharmacists who are licensed in multiple states, and thus may need to meet the varied CPE requirements of different state boards of pharmacy. The CPE tracking system will create a direct link for sending CPE data from the EAHP to ACPE and then to NABP, ensuring that all reported CPE units are officially verified by the EAHP. To view and track these credits, you must first set up an NABP e-Profile (www.nabp.net/#), obtain your NABP e-Profile ID, and register for CPE Monitor.

For each licensed pharmacist from the United States of America who attends BOOST, their NABP e-Profile ID and date of birth are requested to be sent out to events[at]eahp[dot]eu in order to notify NABP and ACPE of the number of CPE units collected by each US participant during the congress on 2023. After CPE units are processed by ACPE and NABP, you will be able to access information about your completed CPE through your NABP e-profile (www.nabp.net/#).

 

ECPhA  European Council for Pharmacy Education Accreditation

The European Association of Hospital Pharmacists (EAHP) and the European Society of Clinical Pharmacists (ESCP) have founded the European Council for Pharmacy Education Accreditation (ECPhA).

The European Council for Pharmacy Education Accreditation (ECPhA) is establishing a system for accrediting lifelong learning education in pharmacy. ECPhA's mission is to help improve the quality of continuing education in pharmacy practiced in healthcare settings across Europe via accrediting live and online lifelong learning events throughout collaborating with national healthcare professional associations and national accrediting bodies.

This is being achieved through applying high quality standards in the assessment of available and future continuous professional development and educational programmes, which address the needs and current practice of pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and the pharmacy staff practicing in Europe.

ECPhA is an accreditation provider so the goal of ECPhA is to present an additional layer to the national accreditation systems in the countries where there is one, and not be a substitute of them.  A European body, such as ECPhA, will ensure that accreditation of European continued education events is aligned with European practice.

In addition, ECPhA is facilitating the attendance of national education events by participants from other countries by ensuring the transferability of continued education points between countries. ECPhA's accreditation is also open to other countries from outside Europe. 

ECPhA applies high quality standards in the assessment of available educational programmes, which address the needs and current practice of pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and the pharmacy staff practicing in Europe and worldwide.

The ECPhA Criteria can be found here.
