26th EAHP Congress | Hospital pharmacists – changing roles in a changing world
March 23 - March 25
From the 23rd to the 25th of March 2022, the European Association of Hospital Pharmacists (EAHP) will be hosting its 26th Annual Congress in Vienna, Austria. Under the theme ‘Hospital pharmacists – changing roles in a changing world’ EAHP’s Scientific Committee under the leadership of Thomas De Rijdt has put together an outstanding Congress programme that takes into account present and future challenges of the profession.
The 2022 EAHP Annual Congress will bring about vast scientific novelties and practical knowledge upon which the hospital pharmacy profession can further develop and strengthen its services for 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, the emerging competencies of frontline patient care in the clinical setting call for new and changing roles in 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 deep involvement and input from hospital pharmacists as well.
Your time in Vienna will be an ideal opportunity to meet fellow colleagues, exchange experiences and knowledge, find new professional connections and celebrate the 50th anniversary of EAHP. 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. EAHP has never ever forgotten its main mission and 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.
