The third annual Clinical Pharmacy Congress (April 25th – 26th, 2014) was roundly praised by both the profession and industry as more than 1,800 delegates and more than 120 exhibitors again thronged at London ExCeL from across the UK for the sector’s largest and most important event for clinical pharmacists.
The two-day Congress featured over 77 speakers covering 54 hours of CPD education across six conference streams, programmed in conjunction with Centre for Postgraduate Pharmacy Education (CPPE), Primary Care Pharmacists’ Association (PCPA) and the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS); providing pharmacy staff from all clinical areas an excellent environment for learning and sharing ideas.
Pharmacists need to change their thinking, delegates told
Pharmacists need to completely change their thinking and stop working in silos and hospital pharmacists have a duty to collaborate with their primary care colleagues to ensure patients receive consistent care once they go home, delegates were told in a hard-hitting keynote address from English Pharmacy Board chairman David Branford at the 2014 Clinical Pharmacy Congress.
