EAHP's SIG on Hospital Pharmacist’s Preparedness for in-vivo GTMP publishes report

Brussels, June 16. The first phase of the Special Interest Group on Hospital Pharmacist’s Preparedness for In-vivo Gene therapy medicinal products (GTMP) closed its work in April 2023. Since then, the SIG has been working on finalising the report that is being published today. 
This report presents the findings of the Special Interest Group on Hospital Pharmacist’s Preparedness for GTMP. This SIG was financially supported by Pfizer and set up by the European Association of Hospital Pharmacists (EAHP).
The SIG carried out desk research and a survey to gather information on the hospital pharmacy preparedness for gene therapy medicines throughout Europe and on preparing and optimising multidisciplinary care teams for the integration of gene therapy medicines into the treatment tools for patients with rare diseases. 
The report includes a proposal for future training activities on GTMP for hospital pharmacists and identifies the need for an update of the EAHP Guidance for Handling GTMP published in 2007. The SIG is currently working on the update on the Guidance.
