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.
Version 9 of the PCNE-DRP classification is now available. These include a domain for seamless care, and the changes that were implemented in the different previous versions of V8 (V8.0, V8.01, V8.02 and V8.03). The new version 9 is backwards compatible with the 8th version, but it needs a small conversion table. A description of all changes since the first version can be found in a separate document. The newest version is now available on-line. The translated versions will be adapted as soon as possible, but are currently still V8.03.
Version 8.0 and 8.01 and 8.02 have been suppressed, although both versions are compatible. The translations of Version 8.03 are still available, because V9.00 has not yet been translated.
A .sav file, for statistical assessments of V8.02 in SPSS is available from the PCNE secretariat.
