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 11th Working Conference of PCNE in Egmond aan Zee has successfully ended on the 9th of February 2019. All five workshops came up with good results, and the plenary lectures were much appreciated.
The Oral Communication Award of the Förderinitiative Pharmazeutische Betreuung was won by Fatma Karapinar (the Netherlands), with her presentation about 'The effect of a Geriatric Stewardship on drug-related problems after discharge'.
The Service Apotheek Poster Award was won by Tamara Imfeld-Insenegger from Switzerland, with her poster on 'Evaluation of medication discrepancies identified through medication reconciliation in community pharmacy settings'.
The workshop reports, all abstracts, and some pictures of the conference can be found at the Conference page.
