Registration opens for EAHP’s 18th Congress in Paris!

Individual and Group registration is now open for EAHP’s 18th Congress in Paris.

The event, a highlight in the hospital pharmacy calendar, will take place from 13th to 15th March at the Palais des Congrès and will have the over-arching theme, “Improving patient outcomes: a shared responsibility”.
Keynote speakers at the Congress will illuminate issues in relation to: the hospital pharmacist’s impact on patient care; the use of multidisciplinary teams; and, the shared responsibility between disciplines in preventing critical incidents.
Seminars on therapeutic matters at the Congress will explore: multidisciplinary approaches to nutrition; ethics and risks in antibiotic prophylaxis; the potential for European-wide hospital pharmacy standards; the team challenge of cancer; and new approaches to wound care.
Operational seminars will investigate: the implementation of technology in the hospital pharmacy; medication reconciliation; the prescription process; pharmacovigilance challenges; and how to achieve seamless care.
Seminars on conceptual issues will examine: quality management; inter-professional learning; and trends in hospital communication.
A number of workshops will also take place with the aim of improving participant’s knowledge and skills in writing abstracts, facilitating patient involvement and resolving drug related problems.
Finally, the Européenne de Formation pour les Pharmaciens will present 3 showcase models of hospital pharmacy as practiced in France.
EAHP Chief Operating Officer and Congress organiser Jennie De Greef said:
“With registration opening today, the excitement is building for what we hope will be another record-breaking Congress in terms of events and participation. As the preliminary scientific programme shows, there is a packed agenda of speakers, seminars and workshops dedicated to delivering our organisation’s aim of developing hospital pharmacy and continuously improving patient care.”
Lastly I would like to express our gratitude to Platinum Partner Amgen, and Gold Partner Bayer Healthcare, for their continued support for our annual Congress.”
