Pharmaceutical Care Network Europe

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.

Conferences Working groups


The PCNE Working Conference 2017 will be held in Bled, Slovenia, on 1-4 February 2017

The 10th PCNE working conference with its fresh plenary sessions and interactive workshops provides a great learning environment to explore, discuss and share different approaches in tackling the implementation of viable pharmaceutical care services. It is suitable for all types of researchers; experienced ones as well as the beginners.

The conference will build capacities needed to provide effective pharmaceutical care services and develop tools to assure their quality. Special attention will be paid to discuss and advance individual as well as joint research projects. We encourage your active participation by submitting research abstracts and presenting them at the conference.

The working conference celebrates its 10th anniversary, therefore some time will also be dedicated to relive and cherish the memories from PCNE's founding members. We will try to pass on the enthusiasm and spirit from those times to the future work.

We would like to welcome your presence at this memorable event in the heart of the Slovenian Alps.
