This Congress continues to provide hospital pharmacists with an exceptional opportunity to meet, network and share expertise and best practice with colleagues while keeping up to date with the latest developments. The educational programme of the 23rd Congress will focus on a variety of topics to showcase the broad range of work that hospital pharmacists carry out.

During the seminars, particular attention will be given on the one hand to medicines shortages, antimicrobial stewardship, advanced therapy medicinal products, clinical trial regulation and ethic committees. On the other hand, aspects of the productive and the effective pharmacist will be explored in sessions on prioritising, process planning and multidisciplinary teams. Workshops will elaborate on the role of the pharmacist in drugs and therapeutics committees; the assessment and clinical importance of pharmacist recommendations; and the check of medication appropriateness.

To ensure that you can benefit from the 3 keynotes, 19 seminars, 3 workshops, 5 Synergy events and the session on Swedish hospital pharmacy, don’t forget to register. Early birds will be rewarded with a reduced registration fee that is available until the end of November.


Participation of students and young professionals is encouraged by specific student/young professional rates and a session specifically tailored to student’s needs. Aspiring hospital pharmacists will have the chance to learn about an evidence based approach to developing an individual patient care plan.
