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.
Pharmaceutical care thrives best when it is provided as a remunerated service. In some European countries, this is already the case. Therefore, the day before the PCNE conference, 1st February 2018, 17.00-19.00h, SEFAC and PCNE organise a 2 hour symposium, with the title
Please note that you must register separately for this symposium. The costs are € 10.00, including coffee.
The symposium aims to provide participants with the background knowledge and tools that are needed to successfully plan the implementation of new services in community pharmacy.
The symposium starts with an overview of successful cases of cognitive pharmaceutical services implementation in some countries. Then one selected service and country will be chosen as an example to introduce some management and planning tools that participants can use throughout the workshop. Subgroups will be created for the practical part of the workshop. These will then start by analysing the current reality in their country; strength, weaknesses and opportunities. Finally, change management theory will be used to assist in the development of an implementation plan, adapted to the national reality.
