The Pharmaceutical Care Network Europe (PCNE) was established in 1994 and it became an official association (under Dutch law) in 2004.
Pharmaceutical Care is the pharmacist's contribution to the care of individuals, in order to optimize medicines use and improve health outcomes.
The 5th Working Symposium of PCNE ended on the 20th February 2016. It was a succesful symposium with 65 participants. The worksop focussed on the outcomes of pharmaceutical care research, the definition of medication review, the creation of a new classification for Drug-Related Problems (DRPs) and the drafting of Guidelines for pharmaceutical care practice. Reports of all workshops will gradually appear on the Symposium pages.
