Registration and abstract submission for FIP’s 81st World Congress of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences now open

The PDA is a proud member of the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) and that means that the PDA can seek out the very best ideas from a much larger international network for the benefit of members.

Sat 11th March 2023 The PDA

Through participation in FIP activity, the PDA and individual members of the PDA not only get to learn from international colleagues, but they also have the chance to contribute to the international conversation about pharmacy too. The collective views of individual pharmacists can also pass through FIP to international discussions and ultimately to the World Health Organisation, if appropriate. 

This year, from 24 to 28 September, FIP members from around the globe can get together in Brisbane to set out long-term goals and principles, as well as short-term actions, to transform pharmacy’s role in and contribution to the sustainable future of health care.

Under the congress theme ‘Pharmacy building a sustainable future for healthcare: Aligning goals to 2030′, members will discuss the changes and new solutions that are needed to maximise the gain that healthcare systems can achieve from their interactions with the pharmacy profession.

The pharmacist is key in assuring a safe and effective supply of medicines as well as their responsible use. As a direct provider of services, from primary prevention and screening of diseases, immunisations to therapeutic monitoring, the work of the profession ensures that a patient’s medical therapy is appropriate, the most effective, the safest possible, and the most convenient.

The FIP Development Goals align pharmacists’ education with societal and healthcare needs, taking into consideration the path to universal health coverage and the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and make the case for investing in the pharmacy workforce of tomorrow.

These goals present the profession with the direction for advancement and transformation and establishing its place within the healthcare system. By linking the FIP vision with a needs-based pharmaceutical workforce transformation programme, we can then build a sustainable future for healthcare, aligning goals to 2030.

Linked to a healthier world, the #Pharmacy building a sustainable future for healthcare: Aligning the goals’ theme sets out long-term goals and principles, as well as short-term actions, to transform the role and contribution of pharmacy. That transformation is required to maximise the health gain that healthcare systems derive from their interactions with the pharmacy profession.
